  • 2 sticks softened butter
  • 1 cup powdered sugar
  • 2 1/4 cups flour
  • 4 tablespoons maraschino cherry juice
  • 1/2 cup chopped maraschino cherries
  • 1 cup chocolate chips


  1. Preheat oven to 350F. Line a baking sheet with parchment paper and set aside.

  2. Cream together the butter and powdered sugar.

  3. Mix in the flour and maraschino cherry juice until it comes together as a dough. Fold in the chopped maraschino cherries and chocolate chips until well blended.

  4. Roll 1 inch balls with your hands and flatten slightly when you place them on the prepared baking sheet (they don't spread much at all so whatever shape they are in when you put them in is how they will come out)

  5. Bake for 12-14 minutes.
