Cherry Vanilla Cookies
1 cup earth balance
1/2 cup sugar
1 tablespoon vanilla extract
2 cups flour
1/2 teaspoon salt
2 cups chopped walnuts (or cashews or pecans)
1/3 cup chopped Maraschino cherries
confectioner’s sugar (to coat cookies)
*Pre-heat oven to 325 degrees F.
*Cream earth balance, sugar, vanilla. Chop walnuts and cherries. Mix flour, salt, walnuts. Add dry mixture to creamed mixture. Mix in cherries. Drop onto cookie sheet (either balls or crescents are nice!). Bake 10-15 minutes, until set, but not brown.
*Cool completely. Add confectioner’s sugar to zip lock bag, add cookies, close bag, shake, and remove cookies, and serve!
These cookies look absolutely scrumptious! I like the cherries in them!
Oh yummy. I love mexican wedding cakes but the addition of chopped cherries is brilliant! I am bookmarking this.
