Cherry Snowballs  

Cherry Snow Balls Cherry Snowballs are made by putting a maraschino dried cherries in the center of small balls of crescent dough (one cherry per cookie). The baked cookies are rolled in granulated sugar to resemble snowballs.

Preparation

  1. Mix the dough.
  2. Put a maraschino dried cherry in the center of a smallish amount of dough. Roll into a ball shape and place on an ungreased cookie sheet.
  3. Bake for 10-15 min at 350F or til light golden.
  4. Roll the hot "snowballs" in granulated sugar. Let cool completely before storing in airtight containers. These keep for several weeks.

You can also make pecan snowballs by substituting pecans for the maraschino dried cherries... and I suppose cranberry snowballs too by substituting dried cranberries for the maraschino cherries.
