Cherry Cookies Ingredients

* 1 2/3 cups/250 g all purpose/plain flour

* 1/2 cup/50 g finely chopped candied cherries

Cherry Cookies Method:

1. Sift the flour, baking powder, and salt into a large bowl. Use a pastry blender to cut in the butter until the mixture resembles fine crumbs.

3. Form the dough into a long log 2 inches (5 cm) in diameter, wrap in plastic wrap, and refrigerate for at least 30 minutes.

4. Preheat the oven to 375°F/190°C/gas 5. Butter three cookie sheets. Slice the dough 1/2 inch (1 cm) thick and place 1 inch (2.5 cm) apart on the prepared cookie sheets.

5. Bake, one sheet at a time, for 8-10 minutes, or until just golden. Transfer to racks to cool.
