We call them Cherry Bombs - here's our version (we often skip the chocolate chip).


INGREDIENTS
1 cup maraschino cherries
1 cup butter
1/2 cup icing sugar
1 tsp vanilla
2 cups flour

Heat oven to 400C.

Drain cherries. Using the bit where the stem was, stick one chocolate chip into each cherry.

Cream butter and icing sugar. Add vanilla and blend well. Add flour and blend thoroughly (knead if necessary to mix).

Take a teaspoonful of dough and flatten it in palm. Wrap around cherry and seal. The heat from your hand will make the dough malleable (if it gets too warm, stick in fridge for a bit).

Put on cookie sheet and bake until beige (the recipe gives no actual cookie time - I *think* it may be about 10 minutes, but I really don't remember).

You can drizzle with icing if you'd like. You can also stuff with dates or walnuts instead of cherries (and colour code your icing).

Oh these sound so good too. Have never tried the chocolate chips, will give those a try as well. Thanks Mary

We love these.............have been making them for over 40 years!! DS's favorite, now he is gluten and dairy free, so I need to experiment and come up with something for him.

sissy_ib 12-06-2012 09:23 AM

Well I think I know what I am making today!!

LJSquishy 12-06-2012 11:52 AM

I'm totally making these today! Thanks for posting about them!

I'm also making white chocolate cherry almond shortbread cookies and also cranberry bliss bars today!

sissy_ib 12-07-2012 04:56 PM

I did make these yesterday and they were a huge hit! I'll be making more for Christmas for sure. Thanks for posting this.

TwingleMum 12-08-2012 08:00 PM

Sound great thanks for sharing

LJSquishy 12-08-2012 11:16 PM

I did end up making these and they are AMAZING!!! I made one minor change -- I used half almond extract and half vanilla extract instead of all vanilla. This definitely made them much better than they would have been otherwise. My entire family loved them!

For anyone considering making them, they are essentially a shortbread cookie with a maraschino cherry in the middle! Heaven. :)
