Online Cookie Exchange

What an awesome idea! Anita suggested an online cookie recipe exchange. So, here is a list of goodies I have made so far or was hoping to bake this month:

Cherry Snowballs
Irresistible Peanut Butter Cookies
Rice Crispie Treats (green and red!)
Almond Stars
Oatmeal Scotchies
Peanutty Caramel Bars
Chevy Macaroons
No-Bake Cookies (my SIL's recipe)

And, here's the one Viking #1 and I will make today: Cherry Snowballs

1 C butter, softened
1/2 C confectioners' sugar
2 C all-purpose flour
1 jar (6 oz.) maraschino cherries, without stems, drained and halved
Additional confectioners' sugar

In a mixing bowl, cream butter and confectioners' sugar; gradually add flour. Shape a tablespoon of dough around each cherry, forming a ball. Place 1 inch apart on ungreased baking sheets.

Bake at 325 for 18-20 minutes or until bottoms are browned. Roll warm cookies in confectioners' sugar. Cool on wire racks.

Yield: 2 1/2 dozen

Please feel free to participate! Post your recipe at your blog and link back to Anita or to here.
