Glace Cherry Shortbreads

Glace Cherry Shortbreads

Introduction

Adapted from Anna Olson, these are very much the Christmas cookie - studded throughout with gorgeously bright and clear candied cherries. You can't use maraschinos in syrup for this - look for the dry-packed glace kind. Store in an airtight container for up to 2 weeks or freeze up to 3 months.

Ingredients

    2/3 cup salted butter, softened
    1/4 cup low-fat cream cheese, softened
    1 cup icing sugar, sifted
    1 egg
    1 tsp vanilla
    1/2 tsp lemon extract
    1 1/4 cups flour
    1 cup cake flour
    10 oz glace cherries (red or green), cut in half

Directions

Cream butter, cream cheese and icing sugar until fluffy.
Beat in egg, vanilla and lemon extract.
Stir flours into the butter mixture until well blended.
Fold in cherries by hand.
Divide dough into three logs, about 1" across.
Wrap in plastic and refrigerate at least 12 hours (alternately, wrap plactic-covered logs with foil and freeze up to 3 months).
Preheat oven to 325 F. Line a baking tray with parchment or a Silpat (do not grease - buy the parchment, you'll want it!).
Cut 1/8" thick slices of the cookie dough, place on sheets 1" apart.
Bake 8 minutes (or frozen dough for 12), until barely coloured.
Cool completely on sheets.
