Directions:
Preheat oven to 325 degrees. In large bowl combine flour and 1/2 cup sugar. Cut in butter until mixture is crumbly. Chop maraschino cherries until they are in very small pieces. Press cherries gently with paper towel, then add to cookie mixture. Add 1/2 cup white chocolate chips to food processor or food chopper, process until in small pieces; add to cookie mixture. Add almond extract and food coloring. Stir gently until all ingredients evenly distributed. Now, knead with your hands until the dough comes together (use gloves if you are worried about the food coloring).
Roll dough into 3/4" to 1" balls. Place on ungreased cookie sheet several inches apart. Dip the bottom of a glass into a bit of water, then dip glass into remaining sugar. Press glass onto each cookie to flatten. Dip glass in sugar, repeat. Bake cookies at 325 for 11 to 13 minutes. Cookie is done when edges are just turning golden. Cool on baking sheet for 3 minutes, then transfer to cooling rack.
Once cookies are cooled, melt remaining white chocolate and shortening in microwave, following directions on chocolate. Dip each cookie in white chocolate, and place on wax paper. Sprinkle with your favorite cookie decorations. Let set for several hours until dry.
Store in airtight container.
