These were absolutely delicious! I made half as directed by the recipe, using one cherry per cookie, and for the other half I chopped up the cherries and added them to the dough along with a little cherry juice and flour (they were pink, and very cute!) Both ways work equally well. However, I don't think a 10-oz jar of maraschino cherries is enough, especially if you use one cherry per cookie as the recipe directs. I used a 16-oz jar easily. I will definitely make these cookies again, perhaps experimenting with almond extract instead of vanilla, just for fun! This recipe would be a real beauty on a party platter.

I dribbled a frosting made from Confectioner's sugar and water over the top of these cookies, so it tasted a lot like those cherry cordials. Several people came to me later and told me that these were the best cookies they've ever had!



With a few changes, this was great! They look so pretty too. I chopped up cherries and added them to the batter. My family likes nuts so I added walnuts as well. Before putting them in the oven, I mixed sugar and walnuts together and dipped the up side of the balls to the mixture. They look very festive! :)
