Day 20: Cherry Bon-Bon Cookies

This post is quick... it's been a long and busy day. I will recap more tomorrow! Enjoy!

Cherry Bon-Bon Cookies

  • 24 maraschino cherries, juice reserved
  • ½ cup butter, softened
  • ¾ cup powdered sugar
  •  cups flour
  • pinch salt
  • 2 tbsp. half-and-half
  • 1 tsp. vanilla extract
  • Glaze
    • 1 tbsp. melted butter
    • 2 tbsp. reserved cherry juice
    • 1-2 cups powdered sugar


Preheat oven to 350*F. Beat butter until creamy. Gradually add powdered sugar. Mix in flour, salt, half-and-half, and vanilla. Shape dough into 24 balls, covering each cherry completely. Bake 18-20 minutes in preheated oven. Drizzle with cherry glaze.

To make glaze, whisk together melted butter, cherry juice, and enough powdered sugar to get the glaze consistency that you desire. (More powdered sugar for thicker glaze, less powdered sugar for thinner glaze.)
