Recipe: Cherry Shortbread Balls

 I decided to post something completely different today...this is one of my favorite Christmas cookie recipes. Enjoy! And Merry Christmas!

Cherry Shortbread Balls

1 c. Butter -soft
1 c. Icing Sugar
1 tsp. Vanilla
2 c. Flour
Maraschino  Cherries - whole - drained

Preheat oven to 350 F. Place parchment paper on 2 cookie sheets.

Blend the butter and icing sugar with a pastry blender.

Add the vanilla.

Blend in the flour. Work with your hands if needed.

Take a small amount of dough (1 tbsp.) in your hands. Roll into ball then flatten.  Place a cherry in the middle. Surround the cherry with the dough. Place on greased cookie sheet. Repeat until all the dough is used.

Can dip in sprinkles or place one small piece of cherry on each before baking.

Bake until shortbread is slightly golden. Cool on baking racks.
