“If you like cherries, this is the cookie for you !” - by Mendy
Original recipe yields 4 dozen
- In a medium bowl, beat together the butter and shortening. Add the sugar; cream well. Mix in the egg and vanilla. Sift together the flour, baking powder, and salt; stir into the creamed mixture. Pat the cherries between paper towels to remove excess moisture. Stir cherries and pecans into the dough. Cover and chill for 2 hours.
- Shape the cold dough into 2 logs. Roll them in the colored sugar, wrap in wax paper and chill again until firm (about 1 hour).
- Preheat oven to 400 degrees F (200 degrees C). Lightly grease cookie sheets.
- Unwrap dough and slice into 1/4 inch slices. Place on the prepared cookie sheets, and bake for 8 to 10 minutes in the preheated oven. Allow cookies to cool 1 minute before removing from cookie sheets to cool on wire racks.

"Just like Mom used to make at Christmas time! The kids and the husband ate them all before we could serve them to guests. Maybe too good a receipt!..." See more"
"this has got to be the best cookie recipe ever! I get raves every time I make them! They are really fast to put together and then they just sit patiently in the freezer until you are ready for them...." See more I made mine for the first time the day after Thanksgiving and didn't bake them until the week of Christmas."
