Maraschino Cherry Shortbread Cookies Recipe


½ C. Powdered sugar

2 C. All purpose flour

½ Tbsp. Vanilla

½ tsp. Salt

¾ C. Maraschino cherries chopped

1 C. Butter softened

⅔ C. Chocolate chips


Dab the chopped cherries dry with a paper towel.

Blend together the butter, vanilla and ½ cup of powdered sugar.

Mix in the flour and salt.

Fold in the cherries and chocolate chips.

Form the dough into a log shape about 2 inches thick, and wrap in plastic wrap.

Chill the dough for 2 hours.

Heat the oven to 325 degrees, and line a baking sheet with parchment paper.

Unwrap the dough, and cut it into slices that are about ¼ of an inch thick.

Place the sliced cookies on the baking sheet, and bake for 18-20 minutes, rotating the pan halfway through the cook time.

Let cool before serving.
