These were easy and cute but not very tasty. The shortbread dough needs improvement - the oatmeal is a No, boost flavoring also either butter flavor or almond or vanilla extract, it also needs a tad more sugar... in other words the shortbread should be able to stand alone. The cherry center, no matter how well-drained, will come out with the first bite leaving no cherry for the other half of the cookie. It might be an improvement to chop the cherries and add to the shortbread dough. The snowball idea with the coconut is cute but I really think a flat cookie painted with a little of the icing and sprinkled with coconut would suffice particularly if the shortbread carried it's weight. I might try again with changes but not as it was written.
