Cherry Pie cookies and powdered snow

Just finished making these little cherry pie cookies.  They look and taste like mini cherry pies.  The recipe calls for 1 cup of butter but you can use 1/2 cup of butter along with 1/2 cup of margarine instead.  Makes for a moister cookie.  Looks great on a plate for Christmas sprinkled with powdered sugar.  Enjoy.
