I got this recipe off of with the only difference being the icing directions. I cooked them at 325 degrees for 18 minutes. I elected not to use the icing recipe listed here or there and used Recipe #273428. I subbed in two tablespoons of the maraschino cherry juice for the liquid called for in the recipe and omitted the vanilla. I made these for a Breast Cancer 50 Shades of Pink Bake Sale.

  2. Shape into 24 balls, press each ball around a cherry and place on an ungreased baking sheet, bake for 18-20 minutes or until light golden, cool on a wire rack.
  3. Place 2 TBS confectioners sugar in a shallow dish and roll the bonbons until lightly coated.
  4. In a small bowl, combine the remaining 1/4 C confectioners sugar and the 2 tsp reserved cherry liquid; mix well, place in a resealable plastic storage bag, cut a small corner off the bag and drizzle the glaze over the bonbons.
