Recipe by breezermom

These make a great appetizer to pair with sparkling white wine. Sweet and savory! Prep and cook time do not include the 2 hour chilling time.

These were unusual and delicious. I made them for a small reception and they were enjoyed very much.

  2. Roll dough into 3/4 inch round balls; cover and chill 2 hours.
  3. Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
  4. Arrange balls on an ungreased baking sheet and press your thumb into each ball of dough, leaving an indentation.
  5. Bake at 350 degrees for 15 minutes or until golden. Transfer to wire racks to cool completely. Place about 1/4 tsp of cherry preserves in each indentation.
