Ingredients:
  • 1 cup butter, at room temperature
  • 1/2 cup powdered sugar
  • 1 tbsp. water
  • 1 tsp. almond extract
  • 2 cups all-purpose flour
  • 1 cup quick oats
  • ¼ cup pecans, chopped
  • 1/2 tsp. salt
Filling:
  • 1 Can cherry pie filling
Topping:
  • 1/3 cup almond milk
  • 2 cups sweetened coconut, chopped
  • ¼ tsp. almond extract
  • 2 cups powdered sugar
Directions:

Preheat the oven to 350F.

In the bowl of a mixer, cream together the butter, 1/2 cup powdered sugar, water and almond extract. In another bowl, mix together the flour, oats and salt. Add the dry ingredients to the creamed butter mixture and mix just until combined.

Using a tablespoon of dough at a time, roll into a ball, then flatten. Place a cherry in the center, then wrap the cookie dough around the cherry. Roll into a ball with the cherry completely covered. Place on an ungreased baking sheet. Once all the cookies are rolled, bake until light golden brown, 17-19 minutes. Let cool completely.

Once cooled, mix together the 2 cups powdered sugar, milk, and almond extract. (Add more milk if needed – you want a dipping consistency.) Completely dip each cookie into the mixture, then roll in the chopped coconut. Allow to dry completely before serving.

Yields: 20 snowball cookies
