How to Make Cherry Filled Butter Cookies

Step-by-Step

  1. Drain your cherries well, with paper towels and place in fridge for 6-8 hours before making cookie dough.
  2. In a mixing bowl, add butter,salt,powdered sugar,egg and vanilla, mix on slow speed till creamed
  3. Add flour mix on low speed until dough is stiff.
    cover and chill for at least 3-4 hours
  4. pre-heat oven to 375*.

    Roll out small balls and make a finger tip hole in the top of the dough, place one cherry in the middle and roll the dough over the cherry (to hide in the middle) and place on a none greased pan and bake for 10-12 mins.
  5. Remove from oven and cool on racks.
  6. Once cooled,lay wax paper or parchment paper down on a flat surface and melt candy melts in the microwave according to package directions, (do your own decor) (I do lines back and forth over the tops )and let setup. (about 2-3 hours will be dry)
  7. These cookies are best used the same day or freeze up to 6 months . I hope you find my Great, Great Grandmothers Cherry Cookies melt in your mouth! Merry Christmas and Enjoy!!
