#3721 - Cherry Butter Cookies

(by Shirley McNevich)

(this recipe is for Dec. 30th)

2 cups softened butter
2 tsp. vanilla
2 cups Domino's powdered sugar
1/4 tsp. salt
4 1/2 cups SIFTED flour (measure before sifting)
1/2 cup chopped walnuts
1/4 cup chopped red maraschino cherries
1/4 cup chopped green maraschino cherries

After chopping the cherries, spread them on paper towels to soak up any liquid. In a mixer add butter, vanilla and powdered sugar--beat. Add salt and slowly add flour--beat. Remove bowl from mixer--add chopped walnuts and chopped cherries--mix/knead with your hands until cherries and walnuts are incorporated evenly. Roll the dough into walnut sized balls and place them on greased cookie sheets. Use the tines of a fork to flatten the cookie and make a criss cross pattern. Bake at 350 degrees 12-17 minutes. This is a tough cookie to get the baking time correct, so definitely bake a test cookie.
