Ingredients

  • 1 c butter
  • 1 1/2 c powdered sugar
  • 1 tsp vanilla
  • 1/2 tsp lemon flavoring, optional
  • 1 egg
  • 2 3/4 c flour
  • 1 tsp soda
  • 1 tsp cream of tartar
  • 1/4 tsp salt
  • Icing:
  • 2 c powdered sugar
  • 1/2 tsp almond flavoring
  • 2 tsp meringue topping mix (can sub meringue powder)
  • maraschino cherry juice, enough to get desired consistency
  • Mix all together and spoon into cooled cookies.

Directions

  • Cream butter and sugar with mixer. Add eggs and mix. Add rest of ingredients; stir well. Chill dough at least 1 hour. (I shaped mine like a tube so it would slice and bake) Form your cookie and depress center (I used my 1 tsp measuring spoon). Bake at 375 for 6-8 minutes. Remove cookies from the oven when they are just barely light brown around the edges. Cool completely before icing.
  • Icing: Mix all together and spoon into cooled cookies.
  • If you are planning on making these cookies smaller like they do at Snowhite, you might want to double or do at least a recipe and a half of the icing to make sure there is enough for all your cookies.

Notes

This is a recipe that is based off a cookie that is sold locally in my husband's hometown. I have never made the recipe with the lemon flavoring added, but intend to. This makes 2 dozen silver dollar-size cookies.
