Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. Line three baking sheets with parchment paper and set aside. Using a stand mixer fitted with the paddle attachment (or a large mixing bowl with a hand mixer), combine the butter, cream cheese, sugar, egg and almond extract and beat on medium speed until creamy and free of lumps.
In a separate bowl, combine the flour, baking powder and salt. Mix well. Gradually add to the butter mixture and beat on medium speed until just combined.
Add the confectioner’s sugar to a small bowl. Scoop out tablespoon-size chunks of batter and form balls using your hands. Roll balls in powdered sugar to coat completely. Place onto the prepared baking sheets. Bake in the preheated oven for 8-10 minutes, or until lightly golden around edges. Immediately press a kiss into the center of each cookie.
- Use peppermint kisses or a different variety to change up the flavor a bit!
- For an extra sugary cookie, double roll the balls of dough in powdered sugar before baking.
