I have made so many of these cookies that I have had
nightmares about them. They are still one of my absolute
favorite Christmas cookies. They are not hard to make, but
they are a little bit time consuming. The candied cherries
make for very attractive cookies. They have a rich vanilla
flavor that melt in your mouth.

1 3/4 cups flour
1/2 cup softened unsalted butter
1 teaspoon baking powder
1 cup sugar
1/2 cup heavy cream
2 teaspoons pure vanilla extract
candied green cherries, quartered
candied red cherries, halved

In a large bowl cream the butter and sugar until light and fluffy.
Whip in the cream and vanilla until creamy and smooth.
In a small bowl whisk the flour and baking powder, then slowly
add to the butter mixture. Turn the dough out onto a lightly floured
surface and knead quickly. Return to the bowl, cover, and chill for
4 hours. Take a small ball of dough and roll into strips about
7 inches long. Take two strips and twist together into a circle.
Place on the prepared cookie sheets. Press a red cherry half into
each cookie and 2 green cherry quarters on each side to form a "flower".
Bake 10 to 13 minutes, or until golden. Cool on the sheets for
5 minutes, then carefully remove onto wire racks. Store in an airtight
container or freeze.
