Cherry Snowball Cookies

Holiday Baker

"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."

I really wanted to like these. The batch was tiny - it made 17 cookies. I followed the recipe to a T and they were bland and crumbly. Not something that I will make again.

My son and his girlfriend loved them. I thought they were just OK. The texture of the coconut was weird for me and the taste of the cherries was too much. Two against one, so 5 stars it is.
