These cookies are easy & taste wonderful. I do add a few drops of red food coloring to the dough to tint it pink.

Really great shortbread based cookie! One of my faves at Christmas! Make sure to roll in extra powder sugar once they're cooled, otherwise they're really not sweet enough.

Every one loves the cherry surprise in the middle!
