Cherry Icebox Cookies
Total TimePrep: 20 min. + chilling Bake: 10 min./batch
These cookies are AMAZING!!!!! I don’t know what these people are talking about. Made a few adjustments. After you chop your cherries, drain them. The extra juice makes the cookies sticky. Or you can add an extra 1/4-1/2 cup extra flour. Also don’t roll into a log and chill. Instead roll out and press circular cut shapes. Place cut pieces on pan, spaced out evenly, and chill for 30 minutes. Cook on 350 for 15 minutes. Let cool completely on pan. If using a convection, lower temp to 325.
Shaping was fine but I'd change from 4 to 2 roll for a better sized cookie. I'd also change the extract from vanilla to almond to get the poor cookie some flavor. These cookies are pretty bland. Overall I was pretty disappointed.
very delicious cherry cookie! my cookies turned out more 'cakelike' cookies....kinda like the Amish sugar cookies, only cherry!
There used to be a bakery in the town I grew up in that had these wonderful "pink cookies". I am trying to find a recipe that reminds me of those dense, crumbly cookies, and this one is not it. They turned out somewhat cakey, and sticky once they cooled. The taste is alright, but I agree with the person who said they're not really worth the time.
Very disappointed...not worth the effort
The only trouble I had with these was getting them formed into some sort of log shape to put in the refrigerator. The flavor is excellent even if they aren't perfect little round things. :)
They are very good and look nice the first time I baked them was 3years ago because my daughter wanted pink cookies and they were so tasty and I never had any problem with the dough
These were yummy the second time around, I added a liittle more juice. It gave it more flavor.

Yummy! These cookies are soft and sweet, just like they look. I used black walnuts that my brother collected and added a teaspoon of vanilla. The dough was very loose and hard to roll into a log, but firmed up nicely. I sliced a little more than a quarted inch thick, so I didn't get quite as many as suggested. Only baked them for 7 minutes. Delish! I will definitely make these cookies again!
