      WOW! These are my new favorite cookie. They are soooo WONDERFUL! So melt in your mouth...just the right amount of sweetness and the surprise cherry flavor is perfect with the outer dough. Oh YUM! I really enjoyed making these also...the dough is so soft and it butters your hands. I used whole cherries and also flattened and wrapped the dough around each one and then rolled them in my hands. Mine may have been larger than only made 20. I cooked them about 22 minutes. Thank you so much for this keeper recipe. Made for the Alphabet Soup game.

      A follow-up on my review dated 12/8. I felt bad slamming this recipe so I decided to tweak it. I added 1t of almond extract and 1T of the cherry juice to the dough mix. I used whole cherries and stuck a chocolate chip in the holes left by the pitting process. I plan to dip the cooled cookie in white or chocolate. To keep with the snowball name I'll use the powdered sugar to the variety.

      I just didn't care for these cookies. After reading the reviews, I was expecting something like shortbread, but I didn't think these were sweet at all. I have noticed in cooking that when using powdered sugar it's hard to get things sweet enough. The buttery flaky part was good, I just think that the cookie should have had some flavor.
