Earlier this week I received a sweet package from Cherry Man. In it were CHERRIES and a few other goodies. This morning before school, Zoe and I were discussing baking when she got home. We decided to make cherry vanilla crinkle cookies from a box and I must say, they are awesome.
They are so fun all stacked up….with a cherry on TOP! They sure are pretty on a plate too.
They were super messy but really yummy to create. We were so excited to use our new Grace (American Girl) Williams Sonoma spatula. It is not only really pretty and useful but is supports a great cause too.
No Kid Hungry has a great mission statement. “NO CHILD SHOULD GROW UP HUNGRY IN AMERICA. But 1 in 5 children struggles with hunger.

Yes, we did lick it clean. If you want to make some too, here is how we did it. We added the extra flour and powdered sugar to compensate for the cherry juice and make a consistency that we could use.
- 1 Box Vanilla Cake Mix
- 2 TB Juice from maraschino Cherry Bottle
- 1/2 Cup Canola Oil
- 2 Large Eggs
- 1/4 C Powdered Sugar
- 1/4 C Flour
- Either frosting or melted vanilla bark and maraschino cherries on top
- Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
- Beat the ingredients all together.
- Form one inch balls and coat in powdered sugar then put on a greased baking sheet.
- Bake for 10-13 minutes.
- Let cool completely.
- Serve with a smidgen of frosting or melted vanilla bark and a cherry from Cherry Man
Zoe is loving her adorable Cherry Man shirt!
She loves the cookies too!
And to top it all off, even after cherry…we gained another Box Top for our collection. Here is a collection sheet that you can use to keep track of yours and donate to your school. You can download it FREE here.
Happy Baking and All Things With Cherries on Top,
