Kissing the Muse in the Kitchen: Cherry Winks

Here is the recipe from featured Muse Community Sweetheart Liz Sykes. (Making these during the holidays is a tradition in her family!)


2 1/4 cups flour

2 tsp baking powder

1/2 tsp salt

3/4 cup butter, soften

1 cup sugar

2 eggs

2 Tbsp milk

1 tsp vanilla

1 cup chopped pecans

1 cup chopped pitted dates

1/3 cup finely chopped maraschino cherries

2 2/3 cups corn flakes crushed

15 maraschino cherries, cut into quarters

1. Preheat the oven to 350 F.

2. Stir together flour, baking powder, and salt. Set aside.

3. In a large mixing bowl, beat butter and sugar until light and fluffy. Add eggs. Beat well. Stir in milk and vanilla. Add flour mixture. Mix well. Sit in nuts, dates, and 1/3 chopped cherries.

4. Shape dough into small balls, about the size of a spoonful. Roll in corn flakes. Place on a baking sheet lined with parchment paper. Top each cookie with a cherry quarter.

5. Bake for about 10 minutes or until golden brown.
