|Wrapping dough around cherries|
1/2 cup butter, softened
1/2 cup brown sugar
1 Tbsp vanilla extract
1 1/2 cups all purpose flour
1/8 tsp salt
3 jars of maraschino cherries, drained for about 1 hour
1 cup confectioners sugar
2 Tbsp whole milk
1 tsp vanilla extract
Cream butter and brown sugar together. Add other ingredients. Wrap dough around well drained cherries. Only use enough dough to cover the cherries. Bake at 350 degrees for 8-10 minutes or until bottoms are golden brown and you can pick up with your fingers. Allow to cool before glazing.
Mix glaze. If it seems to thick add a tiny bit more milk. Be careful a little goes a long way! Dip each individual cookie in glaze and add sprinkles or decoration if desired. Allow to dry.
These cookies can eaten immediately or they can be frozen in individual layers between waxed paper until
needed or about 1 month.
