We first had these in a nearby town known as "Little Sweden". I purchased a cookbook which luckily had the original recipe within! There are other melting moment recipes, but most use cornstarch. These are the real deal - and truly will melt in your mouth! Always a crowd pleaser!

Ingredients Nutrition

Directions

  1. Mix butter, flour and powdered sugar.
  2. Roll into balls the size of ping-pong balls.
  3. Place on cookie sheet and flatted to about 1/2 inch.
  4. Bake at 425* for just a few minutes until the edges just begin to show color (really watch them closely!) When cool, frost with the icing mixture on the FLAT side- to create a sandwich cookie.
  5. (You can just frost the cookie tops to double the cookie total. Also, you may substitute almond extract and a touch of red coloring for the cherry juice).

The BEST melting moment recipe I've ever tried!!! The cookie was the best part for me. They were nice n firm, not like some that are too crummy and fall apart rather than melt in your mouth. Thnx for the awesum recipe!

Hi! I'm a newbie when it comes to baking! tried out your cookies for the first time and everyone loved it (which hardly ever happens!) I was just wondering though, are they meant to be delicate? cause the cookies crumble easily when i transferred them to a plate. is there a way of making the texture a bit harder? do reply. thank you!

These are my favorite cookies!!! I like to put the dough in a pastry bag and pipe out little rounds for special events - I have never used the cherry juice, but I have colored the frosting for all different occasions!!! I found this recipe in "Traditions" the Junior League of Little Rock cookbook!
