Ingredients

  • 2 cups all-purpose flour
  • 1 cup sugar
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon baking powder
  • 1/4 cup cold butter, cubed
  • 2 large eggs, room temperature
  • 1 tablespoon whole milk
  • 1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 1 cup chopped almonds
  • 1 cup halved candied cherries

Directions

  1. In a large bowl, combine the flour, sugar, salt and baking powder. Cut in butter until mixture resembles coarse crumbs.
  2. In another bowl, whisk the eggs, milk and vanilla; stir into flour mixture until blended. Stir in almonds and cherries (dough will be crumbly).
  3. Divide dough in half; shape into two balls. On an ungreased baking sheet, shape each half into a 10-in. x 2-1/2-in. rectangle.
  4. Bake at 350° for 30-35 minutes or until golden brown. Carefully remove to wire racks; cool for 20 minutes. Transfer to a cutting board; cut diagonally with a sharp knife into 3/4-in. slices. Place cut side down on ungreased baking sheets.
  5. Bake for 15 minutes or until firm. Remove to wire racks to cool. Store in an airtight container.
