Cherry Snowball Cookies

Tender snowball cookies flavored with maraschino cherries with a plump cherry surprise in the middle of each cookie then rolled in powdered sugar for a ‘snowy’ finish!

Cherry Snowball Cookies

To get the best coating of powdered sugar you need to roll the cookies twice in powdered sugar. I usually roll them once and wait a few hours then roll again for a pretty top coat of the powdered sugar.

  • 1 cup butter softened
  • 1/2 cup confectioners sugar

Instructions
 

  • In a large bowl, cream butter and powdered sugar until light and fluffy; gradually add flour and mix well. If using food coloring gel, add this now and mix until incorporated evenly.
