Cherry Bon Bons
A perennial favorite of cherry lovers everywhere. Dough is kind of pain ... but worth it!
Preheat oven 350.
- 1/2 cup butter
- 3/4 cup powdered sugar
- 1 TBSP almond extract
- 1.5 cups flour
- 1 jar maraschino cherries (reserve liquid for icing)
- pinch salt
- 2 TBSP cherry juice
- 1 cup powdered sugar
Cream butter and sugar. Add almond and salt, then flour. If dough is very crumbly add a teaspoon or two of water. Dough should be fairly stiff.
Wrap dough around cherry. Bake 12 minutes. Dip in icing while slightly warm.
Icing - just mix the two things together until sugar melts. Add a little more liquid if needed to acheive desired consistency.
PS. this is basically the same dough/recipe as the Candy Kiss Bon Bons.
