COOK TIME

Not only is the center of each cookie a surprise, our recipe for Cherry Surprise Cookies is surprisingly simple, too!

What You'll Need:
  • 1 cup (2 sticks) butter or margarine
  • 1/2 cup sugar
  • 2 teaspoons vanilla extract
  • 2 cups all-purpose flour
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 2 dozen candied cherries (see Options)
  • 1 cup flaked coconut
What To Do:
  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. Coat baking sheets with cooking spray.
     
  2. In a large bowl, cream together butter, sugar, and vanilla. Stir in flour and salt.
     
  3. Form dough into 1-inch balls then press a cherry into the center of each. Reshape each into a ball, completely covering the cherries.
     
  4. Roll the balls in shredded coconut and place 2 inches apart on prepared baking sheets.
     
  5. Bake 20 minutes then cool on wire racks.
     

 OPTIONS: You can substitute dates, almonds, or walnuts for the candied cherries and surprise your gang every time you make these cookies.

do you use unsweetened or sweetened coconut

Hello! We used sweetened coconut in this recipe, but unsweetened would work also. Enjoy!

Do the cookies stay in ball form or flatten after baking?

They don't flatten too much, and stay in more of a round shape.
