How to Make Cheery Cherry Christmas Cookies

Step-by-Step

  1. Beat butter & sugar for about 3 minutes with an electric mixer, or until fluffy.
    Add egg and vanilla and beat 1 minute more.
  2. Mix dry ingredients in a bowl.
    Add gradually to the butter mixture, making sure not to beat too much and stir in cherries by hand.
  3. Divide the dough into thirds; roll each into a log.
    Cover in waxed paper or parchment paper, then plastic wrap.
    Chill overnight or freeze until ready to use, for up to a month (be sure to thaw out if frozen).
  4. When ready to bake, preheat oven to 375 degrees. Slice into ¼” slices and bake 375 10 minutes, until barely brown.
    Store wrapped in refrigerator or freeze until ready to thaw and slice.
