Cherry Almond Butter Cookies

READY IN: 25mins
Recipe by LuuvBunny

These delicious morsels are from the Company's Coming Cookbook called Baking Simple To Sensational and they are sensational! It looks like a lot of butter, but it does not make the cookie salty or too crumbly. The recipe says to put the almonds on top, but I chopped them and put them into the cookie. I'm making these for Christmas and freezing them. I figured the almonds on top would come off once they're put in the freezer. Prep time does not include chill time. The book says it makes 72--I got about 60.I used glace cherries in mine.Almond extract would be nice in these also.

I must admit to being pretty disappointed by these. I just love eating dried cherries, but these cookies were pretty bland. Sorry...
