1 cup sugar
1-1/2 teaspoon baking powder

Gradually beat in flour mixture. Shape dough into 1-inch balls; place 1/2 -inch apart on ungreased baking sheet. Press down center of each ball with thumb to create a small hollow; fill each center with a cherry. Heat oven to 350F.

Bake 10 to 12 minutes or until done. Remove to wire racks and cool. Makes 48 cookies.
