Cherry Cookies....Step by Step


Print Friendly and PDF


Cherry cookies, buttery cookies filled with cherries....just the other day, while visiting the local bakery I bought some cherries on an impulse without thinking what I will make with it....for just Rs 20/ INR....some 50 gm or so....once I reached home I looked at the cherries and they back at me for I don't know how long....and thus these cherry cookies were born in my oven in my tiny weeny kitchen.

 I decided to chop up the cherries with the help of my food processor and was eager to see how my cookies will turn out to be....

The cookies turned out to be crunchy.....and kids loved this ruby studded cookies....

This is my basic butter cookies recipe...the egg yolk is a must, do not skip it......you can also try other variations like adding chocolate chips, nuts, tutti frutti......and Elsy, if you are reading this thank you for giving me this recipe.

So lets get baking!

Ingredients:
Flour: 200 gm.
Butter: 100 gm/1 stick.
Powdered Sugar: 100 gm.
Baking powder: 1/4 tsp.
Egg yolk: 1.
Vanilla essence: 1 tsp.
Cherries: 150 gm.

Method:
Preheat oven to 180 degree C.
Butter should be at room temperature. Cream butter with a whisk to make it soften. Add powdered sugar and cream well.

Add the egg yolk and cream again. Add vanilla essence, mix.

Add the sifted flour and baking powder and mix well. Use your hands to gather the dough.

I chopped the cherries in my food processor.

Love the colour contrast.

Simply knead with hand to bring the dough together.

I love butter paper they are a life saver for me....roll the dough into small rounds and place them on top of butter paper two inch apart. And bake them in a preheated oven at 180 degree C for 20 min or until the sides have slightly browned and center is still soft to touch.

Or if you like to be really crunchy can keep for another 5 to 10 min. Baked and ready!!

Store in air tight containers....it will keep for 2 weeks...

YUM!
