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 had some fresh cherries we had just picked, and was looking for some different ways to use them. This were great. Very rich and yummy.

Easy, Delicious and something different! Love this one!!!!
