1 cup shortening

3-oz cream cheese
1 cup sugar
1 egg
1 tsp almond extract
2 1/2 cups flour
1/4 tsp baking soda
1 1/3 cups chopped nuts
Large jar of maraschino cherries

Preheat oven to 350 degrees.

In a large mixing bowl, combine the shortening, cream cheese and sugar until well combined. Add egg and almond extract; mix in well. Mix flour and baking soda together and add gradually to the shortening mixture. Cover dough and chill. Drain cherries and cut in halves. When dough is thoroughly chilled, roll into balls. Roll the balls in the chopped nuts. Place balls on a very lightly greased cookie sheet or line cookie sheet with parchment paper. Place a cherry half in the center of each cookie. Bake at 350 degrees about 16 minutes or until barely browned.
