#20 Danish Cherry Balls

Wow, these look really good. I am going to try them tomorrow. If they turn out well, I'll take a picture and post it.

Cherry Balls - Kirsebærkugler

* ½ cup soft butter
* ¼ cup powdered sugar
* 1½ cups flour -- sifted
* 1 pinch salt
* 1 teaspoon vanilla
* Maraschino cherries

Mix butter and sugar to a creamy consistency. Add flour, salt and vanilla. Mix with the fingers.

Take a maraschino cherry and fold dough around it, making a small ball - the smaller the better. Put on ungreased cookie sheets and bake 12 to 15 minutes in a preheated 350 degree oven. Cool.


* 1 cup powdered sugar -- sifted
* 2 tablespoons heavy cream
* 1 teaspoon vanilla

Blend well and coat cookie in icing.

Update: Bleh. I did not like these cookies at all. They seemed flour heavy and the flavors were off.
