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.
