  1. Heat oven to 375 degrees F. Grease cookie sheet. Remove wrappers from chocolate pieces.
  2. Beat butter, shortening, brown sugar and granulated sugar in large bowl until fluffy. Add egg and almond extract; beat until blended. Stir together flour, baking soda and salt; add to butter mixture, beating until well blended. Stir in cherries.
  3. Roll dough into 1-inch balls. Combine egg white and water; beat with fork until foamy. Roll balls in egg white, then in walnuts. Place on prepared cookie sheet.
  4. Bake 10 to 12 minutes or until lightly browned. Remove from oven and immediately place chocolate piece on top of each cookie, pressing down gently so that cookie cracks around the edge. Cool 1 minute; remove from cookie sheet to wire rack. Allow cookies to cool until chocolate piece is set, about 3 hours.

I rolled these in chopped, toasted almonds to give them a definite almond flavor -much better!

Looked better than they were, the chocolate kiss saved them. Could not really taste the cherries as much as I thought.

This recipe is very good but it is more invovled than I thought. The cookies were very good and I would make it again but it did not blow me away.

I rate this recipe for it's orginality. I have never seen a cookie like this. It is so creative. I love the flavor of mint so I give it a 5 star!

I LOVED these! They stayed firm yet soft and tasted wonderful. My husband enjoyed them as well, but could do w/o the nuts! I doubled the recipe and they still turned out perfect! This will b...

They look pretty and they taste great. I have made them several times and they are always a hit. It does take a little bit more time than an average cookie but well worth it.
