These are really tasty! I added some slivered almonds and I didn't have any shortening on hand so used 2 sticks of butter. I also rolled them in a little sugar before cooking. turned out great! :)
Edited to add I'm made three dozen for a cookie exchange and they were a hit!
THESE were a giant hit! I needed a quick but charming cookie to add some color to the peanut butter blossoms and chocolate peppermint chunk cookies I'd already made. Found these on a whim, and they outshone EVERY other kind! I also added almond slivers but on TOP of the cookies. DEFINITELY a good idea as the almonds took on a roasted flavor after baking. Seriously one of my new favorites.
Followed exactly except I didn't have any cherries; which is fine because I really just wanted a shortbread cookie. These were delicious!! I will make them again.
Results tasted a little on the bland side. However, the recipe is easy and quick to do.
