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.
