These really are light and melt-in-your-mouth good. I first beat the softened (salted) butter in my electric stand mixer; then beat the dough for the 10 minutes called for. Shortbread is high on my list of fave cookies, so I didn't think I'd want maraschino cherries messing with my shortbread! But it really did add a very nice touch. I used Trader Joe's Maraschino Cherries (no red dye additives and they still taste great). This does not make very many cookies, so if you want a lot, at least double the recipe! I probably got the 3 dozen it says it yields, but they are very small cookies! BTW, there are two recipes for these cookies on this site with one difference: the other one calls for red AND green maraschino cherries! Thanks for the great cookie, Carol!
