My son just loved these cookies I didn't try them since I don't like Cherries but he really loved them I will be making them again for him
Dough should probably be refrigerated before baking. I did not refrigerate dough and my little dough balls flattened out a lot while in the oven
The trick to this recipe is preparing all the cookies at once .Place the balls on sheets. Place the cherries and the topping. Its ok if you then cook them in batches.I have been making these for over 20 years,. If you do it this way the topping maintains its shape and won't slide off. Also, make sure you seal the cherry with the topping.
These are a very tasty and soft cookie. I had no problem with the icing staying in place and they came out looking like the picture. My only complaint was that they crumbled easily.
A delicious cookie. It seems like a lot of steps but actually easy and fast to assemble. The kids in the family loved them a lot, they thought it was a fun surprise to discover a cherry inside. The only thing I would do is put the frosting on after they cook, when I put the frosting on before cooking it seemed to fall off to one side. Putting it on after baking worked out great.
