Cherry Flip Cookies were always my favorite at Christmas time, grandma made them every year.

These also freeze well.


  • jar of maraschino cherries (6 ounces)
  • 1 cup butter
  • 1/4 tsp. salt
  • 2 cups all purpose flour
  • 1/2 cup icing sugar
  • 2 egg yolks
  • 1/2 tsp. almond extract


Step 1

Mix all ingredients except cherries.

Step 2

Wrap dough in plastic and chill in fridge 20 minutes.

Step 3

Roll dough to 1/4" thickness.

Step 4

Cut dough in 3" rounds.

Step 5

Wrap each round over one cherry. Place on ungreased cookie sheet.

Step 6

Bake at 325 F for 25 minutes or until lightly golden.

Step 7

If you want them iced; mix the syrup from the cherries with icing sugar (to desired consistency). Dip cooled cookies in icing.
