Cherry Surprise Cookie Recipe

This recipe came in by phone, and sounded good enough to transcribe. Mostly because I love Maraschino cherries. Unfortunately, in saving the recipe, the name of the baker got lost in translation. So, if you were the one who called, let me know!

Cherry Surprise Cookie Recipe

1/2 cup butter
3/4 cup powdered sugar
1.5 cups sifted flour
1/8  tsp salt
1 jar Maraschino cherries with juice reserved

Drain cherries so they aren’t too wet, reserve juice.

Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Cream butter and sugar, add flour and salt and mix thoroughly. Wrap about a teaspoon of the dough around each cherry and roll into ball. Place on parchment-lined cookie sheet about an inch apart. Press gently. Bake 12-15 minutes. Don’t overcook. They should be blonde in color.

Gently set on cooling rack and prepare frosting.

Mix 1/3 c butter and 2 1/2 cups powdered sugar with just cherry juice to get a good consistency. While cookies are still warm, drop a teaspoon atop the cookie so it melts and glazes the top.
