Bon Bon Christmas Cookies

Reviewed: Dec. 20, 2011
I made a mistake with the recipe and added 1 cup of the confectioner's sugar to the batter. Of course it was really dry and when I re-read the recipe I noticed my error. Rather than trash the batter I decided to try to salvage it. I added an egg to the batter and saved the last 1/2 cup of sugar for dusting. Mixed up the dough, rolled it out, added the cherries and baked the cookies. Amazingly they were delicious!! There was just a little bit of sweetness (which I like) so I can imagine without the sugar in the batter, they would be bland. I also think the egg help keep the batter from being so dry and crumbly as some reviewers have noted. Plus I used butter instead of shortening for a bit more flavor.
