Candied Cherry Cookies

One year when I was serving in the primary presidency, we hosted a teacher training meeting on an evening in December. Each of the presidency members brought a batch of cookies for refreshment. Barbara Higinbotham brought these super fun Christmasy cookies that I thought were so good. So, I asked for her recipe and she was kind enough to share. We made these this year and handed them out at all the houses we caroled at.

CANDIED CHERRY COOKIES

Ingredient:

  • 1 C butter
  • 1/2 C sugar
  • 2 tsp vanilla
  • 2 C flour
  • green and red candied cherries (available seasonally in the baking section–the grocery stores often sell out closer to Christmas which is what happened to me so I had to candy mine own maraschino cherries).

Directions:

  1. Mix the top four ingredients.
  2. Roll into small balls on an ungreased cookie sheet.
  3. Top each one with half of a candied cherry and bake at 350 degrees for 10-12 minutes.
