  1. In a bowl, combine the flour, sugar, baking powder and salt. Cut in butter until mixture resembles coarse crumbs. In another bowl, beat eggs, milk and vanilla until blended; stir into dry ingredients until blended. Stir in almonds and cherries (the dough will be crumbly). Divide dough in half; shape each half into a ball. On an ungreased baking sheet, roll each ball into a 10-in. x 2-1/2-in. rectangle. Bake at 350 degrees F for 30-35 minutes or until golden brown. Carefully remove to wire racks; cool for 20 minutes. Transfer to a cutting board; cut diagonally with a sharp knife into 3/4-in. slices. Place cut side down on ungreased baking sheets. Bake for 15 minutes or until firm. Remove to wire racks to cool. Store in an airtight container.

Dough was so dry that cookies broke up even before baking them the first time. Now enough moisture. Next time I'm cutting back on the flour to just 1 & 1/2cups, not 2. :(

My boyfriends staple for each day! That says a lot because he's a chef! I use a t. each of vanilla and almond flavoring. I also brush with beaten egg white before baking. I love them!
