1In large bowl, beat sugar, butter, vanilla, almond extract and egg with electric mixer on medium speed until well blended. On low speed, beat in flour, baking soda and salt. Stir in cherries and walnuts.
2Divide dough in half. Shape each half into a roll, about 8 inches long and 2 inches in diameter. Wrap each roll in plastic wrap; refrigerate about 2 hours or until firm.
3Heat oven to 375°F. Cut rolls into 1/8-inch slices. On ungreased cookie sheets, place slices 2 inches apart. Bake 6 to 8 minutes or until light brown. Cool slightly; remove from cookie sheets to cooling racks. Cool completely, about 15 minutes.
4Meanwhile, in medium microwavable bowl, microwave candy coating as directed on package until melted and smooth. Dip about 1/3 of each cookie at an angle into coating, allowing excess coating to drip back into bowl. Place on waxed paper; sprinkle with glitter. Let stand about 1 hour or until coating is set.
