Bon Bon Cookies

This festive holiday season would not be complete without the sweet aroma of goodies baking in the kitchen. Make this special treat and you won't be able to keep them away from the kitchen.

Dough

  • 1 3/4 cup flour
  • 1/2 cup confectioner's sugar
  • 1/2 cup butter
  • 2 tablespoons milk
  • 1 teaspoon almond extract
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • Semi-sweet chocolate pieces

Glaze

  • 1 cup confectioner's sugar
  • 1 tablespoon water
  • A little less than 1 tablespoon light corn syrup
  • 1/2 teaspoon vegetable oil
  • 1/4 teaspoon almond extract
  • 1 drop red food coloring

Directions for Dough

Mix together ingredients for dough. When all are well combined, pinch off smallish pieces of dough and flatten in palm of hand. Place a few chocolate morsels in center of the dough; form the dough into a ball surrounding chocolate pieces. Bake at 350 degrees F for 15 minutes. Do not let cookies brown.

Directions for Glaze

Ingredients should combine to make a pinkish glaze. The cookies, once cooled, can be glazed by dribbling the glaze on the tops of the cookies or by dipping the round cookies into the glaze so that the top half of the cookie is coated. Let sit until glaze hardens; then serve or freeze.
