Cherry Cookies Recipe

These Cherry Cookies are perfect for Valentine's Day with a fun cherry surprise inside.  They are made with cake mix, and are super moist.

These cherry cookies are a fun surprise with the maraschino cherry hidden inside the cookie.  They are great for Valentine’s Day, or you could even make them for the holidays.  They are nice and moist since they’re made with a vanilla cake mix.

Cherry Cookies Recipe
 
Ingredients
  • 1 box vanilla cake mix
  • 4 oz (1/2 brick) cream cheese
  • ⅓ cup butter, softened
  • 1 egg
  • 20 maraschino cherries
  • 1 cup icing sugar
  • 3-5 Tablespoons maraschino cherry juice (or grenadine)
Instructions
  1. Preheat oven to 350F
  2. Mix together cake mix, cream cheese, butter and egg.
  3. Portion into 1½ Tablespoon-sized balls (I used a cookie scoop to help with this). You should end up with approximately 20 cookie balls.
  4. Take one ball and flatten it in your hand. Place the cherry on top and fold the cookie dough around the cherry (carefully) to cover it completely.
  5. Repeat with remaining cookie dough.
  6. Bake in preheated oven for 10-12 minutes, until cracked and no longer glossy.
  7. Cool the cookies on a cooling rack as you prepare the drizzle.
  8. Mix together the sugar and maraschino cherry juice - starting with 3 Tablespoons and adding more to get a runny yet still somewhat thick texture.
  9. Drizzle the pink cherry drizzle over the cookies and allow to set before serving or packaging.

Cheap Kindle Book: The Frontiersman’s Daughter for $1.99 (87% off)

The-Frontiersman's-Daughter

For a limited time, you can buy The Frontiersman’s Daughter Kindle book written by Laura Frantz for only $1.99 (87% off) from Amazon.  I read this book several years ago, and I really enjoyed it.  I haven’t read too many other books set in Kentucky during the early days during the Revolutionary War/French and Indian Wars.

About the book:

Lovely but tough as nails, Lael Click is the daughter of a celebrated frontiersman. Haunted by her father’s former captivity with the Shawnee Indians, as well as the secret sins of her family’s past, Lael comes of age in the fragile Kentucky settlement her father founded. Though she faces the loss of a childhood love, a dangerous family feud, and the affection of a Shawnee warrior, Lael draws strength from the rugged land she calls home, and from Ma Horn, a distant relative who shows her the healing ways of herbs and roots found in the hills. But the arrival of an outlander doctor threatens her view of the world, God, and herself–and the power of grace and redemption.

This epic novel gives readers a glimpse into the simple yet daring lives of the pioneers who first crossed the Appalachians, all through the courageous eyes of a determined young woman. Laura Frantz’s debut novel offers a feast for readers of historical fiction and romance lovers alike.

Please note: Kindle prices tend to change quickly, so be sure to check that the total still says $1.99 before you “purchase” it.

FREE Kindle Book: Love’s Unfading Light (Eagle Harbor Book 1)

Love-Unfading-Light

Right now, you can download Love’s Unfading Light: Historical Christian Romance (Eagle Harbor Book 1) Kindle book written by Naomi Rawlings for FREE from Amazon.

About the book:

Tressa Danell is finished with men—from the wastrel who left her a widow, to the smelly trapper who keeps proposing, to the banker who wants to repossess her bakery. Every hour is spent working to pay off her late husband’s debt and keep a roof over her son’s head, though it’s doubtful she can do both for very long. But one thing’s certain—she’ll never be beholden to a man again.

Tired of living in a small town that blames him for actions his father committed ten years ago, Mac Oakton is scheduled to leave Eagle Harbor. So why does the pretty widow at the bakery keep tugging at his heart? He can’t get involved in her predicament when he’ll only be around for two more weeks.

But when Tressa’s burdens overwhelm her, they both face a decision. Can Mac set his own plans aside to help? And can Tressa accept his support if that means giving up her independence … and being obligated to a man again?

Love’s Unfading Light is another memorable novel by fan-favorite author Naomi Rawlings. If you like heartwarming Christian romance with a clear inspirational message and a touch of drama, you will love the first book in the Eagle Harbor Series.
