This recipe can actually be one of the best shortbread cookie recipes. The only error is that there shouldn't be 1 cup of butter, only 3/4 cup butter.

I quadrupled this recipe for a large group. the previous reviewer is right, only use 3/4 cup butter.. Also make sure your cherries are thawed out or fresh. I might even replace some of the powdered sugar with granulated sugar, and add some vanilla for flavor. I love shortbread, but this needed a little something!

I was very disappointed with the recipe. I made it twice and tried adding extra flour the second time since the cookies ran all over my baking sheet the first time. Sorry, but I would not recommend this one.
