Cherry Bon Bon Cookies

This is a recipe that we make every year for Christmas. It’s one on our all-time favorites, and also makes a pretty and delicious gift. We always double or triple the recipe.

Cherry Bon Bon Cookies

Mix:  1/2 c. butter

          3/4 c. powdered sugar

          1 tsp. vanilla

           1 1/2 c. flour

           1-2 Tbsp. water

Drain  a 10 oz. jar of maraschino cherries and spread cherries to dry on a paper towel.

Roll dough into balls, flatten, then wrap each piece of dough around a cherry. Bake at 350 until set, but not brown (12-15 min.).

After cookies have cooled somewhat, dip into thinned green icing and set out until frosting has hardened.
