Cherry Bonbon Cookies Recipe

1/2 cup butter, softened
3/4 cup confectioners' sugar
2 tablespoons milk
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
1-1/2 cups all-purpose flour
1/8 teaspoon salt
24 maraschino cherries
GLAZE:
1 cup confectioners' sugar
1 tablespoon butter, melted
2 tablespoons maraschino cherry juice
Additional confectioners' sugar

Directions

In a large bowl, cream butter and sugar until light and fluffy. Add milk and vanilla. Combine the flour and salt; gradually add to the creamed mixture.

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

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.
