Pauline Batdorf


1 jar (1 lb) Maraschino cherries
1/2 c. semi-sweet chocolate chips
1 1/4 c. sifted flours
1/4 tsp baking powder
1/2 tsp baking soda
1/4 c. corn oil
3/4 c. light brown sugar
1 egg
1/2 T vinegar or lemon juice
1/2 c. evaporated milk
1/2 tsp vanilla
2 c. powdered sugar

Pour cherry juice and reserve for frosting. Stuff a chocolate piece into each cherry. Sift together flour, baking powder, baking soda with fork blend in oil until mixture looks like fine crumbs. Beat sugar and egg, stir in vinegar, milk and vanilla. Combine mixtures. Batter will be thick. Dip cherries into batter turning to coat completely. Lift cherries out and place on an ungreased cookie sheet and bake at 400 for 8-10 minutes.

To make frosting, stir 1/3 cup cherry juice into 2 c. of powdered sugar. Spoon frosting over top of bonbons.
