    Snow(drop/flake/ball) cookie w/cherry in the center??

    Mom used to bake these cookies. The dough was creamy beige, there was a cherry in the middle, and the outside was rolled in powdered sugar. I have no way to search for a similar recipe without some idea what to look for. Anyone an idea where I should start?

    These pretty cookies have a surprise cherry in the middle.

    1 cup butter, softened
    1/2 cup confectioners’ sugar
    1 tablespoon water

    Directions

    In a bowl, cream the butter, sugar, water and vanilla.

    In another bowl, combine the flour, oats and salt; gradually add to the creamed mixture.

    Shape a tablespoonful of dough around each cherry to form a ball. Place 2-inches apart onto ungreased baking sheets. Bake for 18 to 20 minutes or until bottoms are browned. Let cool.
