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).
Thanks so much! I am going to try to make these!

They are simply delicious. Now I want some for breakfast!
I just made these. They turned out great! Hardest part was getting the icing on top without making a mess

3/4 cup confectioners' sugar

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.
Divide dough into 24 portions; shape each portion around a cherry, forming a ball. Place on ungreased baking sheets. Bake at 350° for 18-20 minutes or until lightly browned. Remove to wire racks to cool.
For glaze, combine the sugar, butter and cherry juice until smooth. Drizzle over cookies. Dust with confectioners' sugar. Yield: 2 dozen.
Made this version today. I think I found this year's favorite Christmas cookie!

They look perfectly wonderful to me. I usually just try to make sure I cover the cherry with frosting and anything else is just a bonus! It is easier to do this if you make your thumbprint hole where the cherry fits in a little deeper.

I did make the hole fairly deep, or so I thought. I bought enough for 2 batches. I'll need to make the other batch. My DD is tearing up this batch!!! I will make the hole a little deeper on the next batch
