How adorable will these be on a cookie tray? I love the addition of cherries to this melt in your mouth shortbread cookie. Don't forget to double dip the glaze like Sarah suggests... it really takes these to another delicious level. Test Kitchen Avatar The Test Kitchen

How to Make Cherry-Ettes

Step-by-Step

  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
  2. Place all cookie dough ingredients into a bowl, and knead by hand to combine. You can use a mixer, but I've found with this recipe, it's easier to just get in there with your hands.
  3. Shape the dough into roughly tablespoon sized balls or use a cookie scoop. Place the cookies onto ungreased baking sheets. Bake for 15-17 minutes until just light golden on the bottom. Let cool.
  4. To make the glaze, mix all ingredients together.
  5. Once the cookies are cool, dip the tops in the glaze and place on waxed paper lined sheets to set. Dip twice if you like. I usually do! Enjoy!
