Christmas Cookies Day 12 - Cherry Bon Bons


There’s a surprise inside each of these festive Cherry Bon Bons. They’re easy to make since they start with Basic Sugar Cookie Mix. Once the dough is mixed (only 3 ingredients), balls are scooped and a maraschino cherry is pressed into the center of each ball. After baking they are dipped in melted canned frosting and sprinkles. Talk about quick and easy!

Cherry Bon Bons aren’t just for the Christmas holidays; they can be adapted to other holidays such as Easter, St. Patrick’s Day, or the 4th of July simply by changing the color of the frosting. Chocolate frosting is the favorite of the official Hancock tasters, and they like them year round. This easy cookie is sure to become a favorite with everyone.

About 4 dozen cookies

48 maraschino cherries

4 cups Basic Sugar Cookie Mix
2 eggs
1 teaspoon almond extract

1 cup canned chocolate frosting, or canned vanilla frosting

  4. Scoop tablespoon-size balls.

  5. Press a cherry into the center of each ball and shape the dough around each.

  6. Place on parchment-lined or well-greased baking sheets.

  7. Bake 12-14 minutes or until the edges begin to turn golden brown.

  8. Remove from the oven to cooling racks; let cool thoroughly.

  9. Open the can of frosting; microwave 30 seconds.

  10. Stir and dip the top of each cookie in the frosting.

  11. Add a few sprinkles immediately.

  12. Once the frosting has set, store in an airtight container or freeze.
