Maraschino Cherry Almond Cookies
February 14, 2010

The kids loved these cookies. However, I wasn't as impressed with making them, and the flavour wasn't really worth all the effort. I didn't have almond extract so I used vanilla, which could be part of them not having a very bold flavour. The dough was so soft that I couldn't roll it into a log, so I stuck it in the fridge overnight (almost 24 hours) and tried to roll them into a log again, still too soft and sticky, resulting in losing a lot of the dough to my hands. But not one to waste ingredients I put some flour on some wax paper and rolled it that way and stuck it back in the fridge for a couple more hours. When I went to cut it the dough was too soft resulting in me having to roll each slice and press back into shape. The taste is good, just not a very strong cherry flavour, and that's okay the almond extract would've helped with that. But the difficulty in making them made them lose a star, perhaps using them as a drop cookie would be better.
