    Delicious cookie. It is like a cherry wrapped in a sugar cookie.

    What a lovely cookie recipe! A little time-consuming to make but well worth it in taste and presentation. I liked that the dough is not really sweet; it's a good balance with the sweet cherry and icing. I did add some cocoa powder to my icing mix. Thanks for sharing your recipe! Made for the Sweet December holiday event, 2013

    This recipe is a perfect choice for a "Christmas in July" party. I have made Bon Bons at Christmas time for many years and they're always a hit. <br/><br/>I substituted margarine for butter and didn't bother sifting any of the icing sugar. I also made just 14 Bon Bons with this recipe as that is how many cherries I had. I can't imagine how tiny they would have been if I'd made 36 like the recipe says it makes.
