Brown Sugar Shortbread


Ingredients

Scale
  • 1 cup butter
  • 1/2 cup brown sugar
  • 2 1/4 cups flour
  • 3/4 cup chopped red & green glace cherries

Instructions

  1. Cream the butter and brown sugar until it is very soft.
  2. Then add the flour, 1 cup at a time, and beat well each time.
  3. Chop the cherries in to small pieces, and add them to the batter. Mix well.
  4. You will find the dough quite dry, but don’t worry it’s supposed to be like that. Just mix the dough with your hands until if firms up into a ball.
  5. Once the dough is firm, roll it in wax paper to make a log 2″ in diameter. Wrap tightly. You may even want to split the dough into 2 logs. One batch to bake now, and one to bake later!
  6. Chill in the fridge for at least 2 hours.
  7. When ready to bake, preheat your oven to 350 degrees.
  8. Cut the log into 1/4″ slices, and bake for ~10 minutes.
