Gather about a tablespoon of dough and fold dough around cherry, making sure it's not too thick. Place on cookie sheet. Bake for 12-15 minutes @ 350 degrees. Mix icing ingredients; blend cookies into icing while still slightly warm, and let sit on waxed paper until icing has hardened. A family favorite!
