White Chocolate Cherry Almond Shortbread Cookies
Fri, 02 Dec 2011 by Christy Denney
December 1st also means I start thinking what cookie to make for cookie exchanges or for neighbor treat plates. I always stress over making the perfect cookie. The recipe has to be festive, taste awesome, easy, unique, and make a lot of cookies. I spotted these cookies on Pinterest and they seemed to fit the bill. Cherry and almond mixed together – which is one of my favorite flavor combinations. I added more cherry liquid and almond extract to bump up the flavor because that’s how we do it around here.
It’s a shortbread cookie which means the dough is super dry. Don’t be worried. This is normal. It should look like this:
It will all come together when you knead it into a ball. Look at those beautiful chunks of white chocolate and cherries.
Then you make really small balls and flatten them with the bottom of a glass.
