Recipe by Blender Woman
"This is a version of the popular snowball cookies. Cherries, coconut, and walnuts have been added. They are easy to make, not overly sweet, and make a pretty festive pink color inside from the addition of the chopped maraschino cherries."

YUM! Super delicious cookies! I have made this several times now, and I think it's become a favorite with me and my son. This recipe makes exactly 18 cookies with my small 1 1/2 inch cookie scoop, and only took 15 minutes in my oven. I have made them with walnuts, pecans and almonds and they all taste great! I brought them to a neighborhood party and everyone raved about them. This is definitely going into my Christmas cookie exchange this year, thanks for the wonderful recipe!
Hello, I am the submitter of this recipe. I hope you enjoy these cookies! They are great for a Christmas or a holiday tray, a pot-luck, or just a nice treat with coffee any time of the year. Make sure to very finely chop the sweetened coconut, it only comes shredded. All of the ingredients are neccessary to hold the cookie together very well. I use parchment paper to avoid sticking and ease with clean-up. A cookie scoop, will also be neccessary to create the even mound shape and uniform baking. Feel free to double the recipe if neccessary, to get 3 dozen cookies. Thank you, for trying my cookie recipe.
Made for Recipe Group. Simply delightful! Even though there is no almond flavoring, you get a hint of that from the cherries I think. I used crunched Frosted Flakes instead of coconut, worked great. Wonderful flavor and texture and easy to make. I didn't use a mixer, just mixed them up by hand and cookie scooped them onto parchment. I think next time I will let them cool before rolling in sugar though. Thanks BW!
I made these for Recipe Group. Using my small cookie scoop I got 20 cookies. I like small recipes, and this one is both good and unique. I still needed to roll the balls, as just dropping them would not have produced a round ball to roll in the powdered sugar. My teens said they are okay. Tomorrow I will share these with some friends. I will likely make these again sometime. Thank you for sharing Blender Woman. Add: My grownup friends liked these a lot.
Just made these. Had a jar of maraschino cherries that I bought to make a Shirley Temples when she passed away. Figured I'd make a powder sugar cookie and use them up with that. These are very good and quick to make. I made small bite size cookies so got ~ 24. I like how there is an ad between the recipe and reviews for "flirty plus size outfits". I did a double take at that..really!
Recipe Group Selection: 07, December 2013 ~ I'm a month behind on getting this recipe made - but glad I still went ahead and made them. I am not a huge maraschino cherry fan, but they are really good in this recipe. They add a nice flavor and make the cookie a very pretty color when you bite in to them. I did roll in powdered sugar twice, but, both times was after the cookie had cooled. Thanks Blender Woman for sharing this recipe. It is a very good one!
Very tasty cookie, wish I had made a double batch. Next time I make them I think I will add a couple more cherries. Thanks for the recipe!
