Chocolate-Filled Bon Bons

This recipe was submitted by Sue Silvestri, cookie angel to the Westmoreland County Area Agency on Aging. She says, "I really enjoy the taste of vanilla, almond and chocolate together."

3/4 cup shortening
1/2 cup sugar
1/4 cup brown sugar
1 egg
2 teaspoons vanilla extract
1/2 teaspoon almond extract
1 3/4 cups flour
1/2 teaspoon baking powder
1/2 teaspoon salt
3 1/2 dozen chocolate kisses

Preheat oven to 350 degrees.

Mix shortening, sugars until fluffy. Add the egg, extracts and beat well. Add flour, baking powder and salt and mix well. Form dough into 1-inch balls. Press each ball around a kiss until it is completely enclosed. (Our dough was soft and a little sticky, so we added an additional 1/4 cup flour.)

Bake for 12 minutes on ungreased cookie sheets. You can leave them plain, but Silvestri frosts them with any type of vanilla frosting.

Recipe will make 3 1/2 dozen.
