    Susan Lee's Note:

    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!

    1. 1
      Mix butter, flour and powdered sugar.
    2. 2
      Roll into balls the size of ping-pong balls.
    3. 3
      Place on cookie sheet and flatted to about 1/2 inch.
    4. 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. 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!
