  1. Blend together the butter, egg yolks, vanilla, salt, confectioners' sugar and flour.
  2. Take small amount of dough in hand , flatted out and wrap around drained cherry. ( I use a combination of red and green cherries and tint the icing to match the color of the cherry. )
  3. Bake on ungreased cookie sheet at 350 degrees F (175 degrees C) until golden brown (about 10 minutes).
  4. Cool and dip in tinted butter icing. Roll in coconut flakes. ENJOY!

I love these cookies! My grandmother has made them for years, but only recently did I find out that her name for them is "maidenhead cookies"!... hahaha, still very irresistable!

Absolutely wonderful. The final product comes out rather sweet but I found that the cookies had a tendency to crumble (as shortbread-type cookies do) if the frosting was too thick. Problem eas...

Dry dough..Definately needs frosting

Awesome cookie. Soft and sweet.
