When it comes to baking rarely do I create my own recipes, though I often change them a lot, this one (well the cookie itself) came from Cake Artisan HERE.
However the icing is mine.
I don't like using typical food color (unfortunately there is gel food coloring in the cookies themselves but I wanted to play around with the icing. So I used fresh cherry juice:
1 cup confectioner's sugar
1 tablespoon honey (or corn syrup)
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
1 pat butter (at room temp)
Mix it together in a medium sized bowl until you reach the consistency you want, feel free to play around with the amounts.
I really wish I had a good quality camera because the icing turned out sort of pearlescent and pretty but it isn't captured here:
(The dark spots are bits of cherry)
