1 cup sugar
3/4 cup shortening
2 tablespoons milk
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
2 eggs
2 1/4 cups flour
1 teaspoon baking powder
1/2 teaspoon baking soda
1/2 teaspoon salt
1 cup chopped pecans
1 cup chopped dates
1/3 cup maraschino cherries, chopped & drained
1 1/2 cup coarsely crushed corn flakes cereal
15 maraschino cherries, quartered


In large bowl, combine sugar and shortening; beat well. Add milk, vanilla and eggs; mix well.

Lightly spoon flour into measuring cup; level off. Add flour, baking powder, baking soda and salt; mix well. Stir in pecans, dates and 1/3 cup chopped cherries. If necessary, cover with plastic wrap; refrigerate 15 minutes for easier handling.

Heat oven to 375 degrees F. Grease cookie sheets.

Drop dough by rounded teaspoonfuls into cereal; thoroughly coat. Shape into balls. Place 2-inches apart on greased cookie sheets. Lightly press maraschino cherry quarter into top of each ball.

Bake at 375 degrees F for 10 to 15 minutes or until light golden brown. Remove from cookie sheets.
