Directions

  1. Beat sugar into the softened butter. ( I leave this mixture on the counter for half an hour so that the sugar dissolves into the butter properly. Then pour this into the flour and beat until mixture is white.
  2. drop by spoonful onto parchment papered cookie sheet place a christmas cherry on top and bake at 300-325 until pale brown. (not sure exactly how long, probably 10- 15 minutes.
  3. You might want to double the recipe on this one, because you'll end up not being able to put these down.
