Directions

  1. Preheat oven to 300 degrees and position rack in center of oven.
  2. Line cookie sheet with parchment paper. ( I have lightly sprayed the cookie sheet instead and it works fine).
  3. In processor mix flour, sugar butter and salt for 20 seconds. Add cherries or cranberries and pulse until chopped about 20 seconds more.
  4. Turn out mixture onto work surface and make into a smooth, compact ball.
  5. On a lightly floured surface roll the dough into a 7X9 rectangle about 1/4 inches thick. Cut into 12 rectangles and prick each cookie 3 times with a fork.
  6. Using metal spatula place the cookies on the prepared cookie sheet and refrigerate 20 minutes.
  7. Remove from fridge and bake 30-35 minutes. Let cool for 10 minute before transferring to a wire rack to cool completely. Sprinkle with sugar.
  8. Enjoy!
