This recipe is one of our Christmas traditions. I risk an uprising if I try to skip a year making it!
Bon Bon Cookies
- 1 c. butter
- 1 1/2 c. powdered sugar
- 1 T vanilla
- 3 c. flour
- 2-3 T water
- 60 cherries
Cream together butter and sugar. Add vanilla, flour, and water. Dough will be crumbly, but you should be able to form it into a ball. If not, add a little more water.
Form dough into a small ball, then flatten and wrap dough around a cherry.
Bake at 350 until cookies are barely browned.
Dip tops of cookies into warm icing (powdered sugar, milk, and food coloring) and let set until the icing has hardened. If desired, decorate tops of cookies with chopped cherries, nuts, or coconut while the icing glaze is still wet.
