Cherry Snowballs

I remember this from growing up. My mom made them every Christmas. If you get a red cherry in the middle it means you get a kiss from the closest person to you. If you get a green cherry it means you get a hug.

We only bought red cherries so everyone got kisses!!!

Pepper added by Joey - seriously??


1 cup butter
1/4 cup icing sugar
2 cups flour
1/4 teaspoon salt
1/2 cup finely chopped almonds
1 teaspoon vanilla
36 candied cherries

1. Cream butter with sugar until fluffy
2. Add remaining ingredients except cherries, mixing well with your hands
3. Flatten a small bit of dough (about a teaspoon) in the palm of your hand
4. Place a candied cherry in the circle of dough
5. Cover cherry by pinching dough up and around it
6. Roll between the palms of your hands until smooth
