I kind of passed out a few days ago from the Christmas madness and needed a bit of a break and went into recovery mode but really wanted to share this last little Christmas cookie with you. I had always loved cookies with candied cherries in them when I was a kid and always wondered how you made them. This year I went to the Bulk Barn and picked up some red and green candied cherries and tried the Candied Cherry Slices recipe at Bed and Breakfast Recipes at iloveinns.com to share with special friends who came over for a gaming night at our house right before Christmas.
This is a pretty wet dough at first, probably because it uses powdered sugar but it actually make a lot of batter! Which means, it makes a lot of cookies. Perfect for the holidays!
It requires 2 cups of green and red candied cherries cut in half although I think next time I will chop them up a little more. They fell out of the batter a lot.
This is one of those doughs you make into a log and then chill so you could slice them individually and see the cherries shine through like stained glass.
As I said, it makes a lot. I even have some leftover dough in my fridge!
Here is their plate of Christmas treats. As much as I love baking, I think I am done with sweets for a while. With the new year around the corner, perhaps it is time to focus on things like vegetables?!
