Total Time: 80 Minutes, Servings: 48 Servings



Ingredients :
  • For cookies:
  • 2 - 12 oz. jars maraschino cherries drained (reserve juice), minced, squeezed VERY dry
  • 1 cup butter softened
  • 1 cup vegetable or canola oil
  • 1 cup granulated sugar
  • 1 cup powdered sugar
  • 2 large eggs
  • 2 tsp. almond extract
  • 2 tsp. cherry extract
  • 4 1/2 cups all-purpose flour
  • 1 tsp. baking soda
  • 1 tsp. cream of tartar
  • For icing:
  • 4 tbsp. butter melted
  • 1/3 cup + 1-2 tbsp. maraschino cherry juice
  • 1 tsp. almond extract
  • 1 tsp. cherry extract
  • 4 - 5 cups powdered sugar
  • 1/2 cup slivered almonds for garnish



Instructions :
  • For cookies:
  • As noted above, drain the maraschino cherries, reserving the juice (!), finely mince the cherries, and then pat/squeeze VERY dry. Set aside.
  • In a large mixing bowl, beat the butter, oil, and sugars until combined.
  • Beat in eggs, almond extract, cherry extract, and minced cherries.
  • In a large bowl, whisk together flour, baking soda, and cream of tartar.
  • Gradually add flour mixture to the butter mixture, beating until just combined after each addition. Do not overmix.
  • Line baking sheets with parchment paper or silicone baking mats.
  • Drop dough by teaspoonfuls onto baking sheets.
  • Bake at 375 for 8-11 minutes, or until edges and bottoms are lightly browned.
  • Remove to wire racks to cool.
  • For icing:
  • Whisk together butter, maraschino cherry juice, and extracts.
  • Stir in 4 cups powdered sugar, mixing until smooth.
  • Add additional maraschino cherry juice or powdered sugar, as needed, to achieve a thick, but spreadable consistency. It should be thicker than a glaze, and it shouldn't run off the cookie, but should be easily spreadable.
  • Frost cookies, sprinkle with slivered almonds, decorate with additional sprinkles, if desired, and allow to set.
