 Ingredients List

  • 3 1/2 sticks unsalted butter (salted butter can also be used)
  • 3 1/2 cups UNBLEACHED all-purpose flour (bleached flour toughens baked goods)
  • 2 tsp. almond extract
  • 1 1/2 cups sugar
  • 1 1/2 to 2 cups fresh cherries pitted, diced, and patted dry really well (I only had 1 ½ cups but 2 cups would be better)


Pit cherries.
Cut into small pieces and pat dry with paper towels.
Set aside.
Blend butter to a peak with an electric mixer.
Add sugar, and almond extract and cream again until smooth.
Stir in flour and cherries.
Spray cookie sheets with cooking spray.
Roll cookies into balls and place on prepared cookie sheets.
Press cookies down lightly with fork in a criss-cross fashion.
Bake at 350° for 15-20 minutes or until done.
