Melting Moments III

A yummy cookie! It is easy and quick to make. Makes a great Colossal Cookie, if you use a small pizza pan and cover with jam.

Original recipe makes 2 – 3 dozen


1 cup butter
2 cups all-purpose flour
1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract
3/4 cup packed brown sugar
1 egg
36 maraschino cherries, halved


  1. Cream butter or margarine and sugar. Separate the egg and add the egg yolk and vanilla; mix well. Add flour and mix well.
  2. Form dough into balls. Place balls on a cookie sheet, and press each down with a fork. Place half a cherry or a dollop of jam in the center of each cookie.
  3. Bake 15 minutes at 375 degrees F (175 degrees C). Remove and cool.
