Cherry Mexican Wedding Cakes

February 11, 2018



I put a twist on a Christmas favorite for these cookies.  They are the perfect bite.  Buttery, melt in your mouth goodness and not too sweet.  The touch of pink comes from the cherries making them a great choice for your special Valentine.  If you like a touch of chocolate with your cookie check out the Cherry Chocolate Chip Cookie on my blog. Enjoy.




2 cups of flour

¾ cup chopped walnuts

½ cup chopped maraschino cherries

2 TBSP cherry juice

¼ cup sugar

1-cup butter, unsalted

1 tsp. vanilla

pinch of salt

½ cup powdered sugar




Preheat oven to 325 degrees.  Combine all of the ingredients in a mixing bowl except for the powdered sugar.  Beat on slow speed until just combined.  Shape dough into 1” balls.  Place on a parchment lined baking sheet and bake for 18-20 minutes or until lightly golden.  Let cool for 5 minutes and roll in powdered sugar.  Makes 36 cookies.
