Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Beat the butter, egg yolks and brown sugar until creamy. Add vanilla and beat again. Remove beater and get a spoon to mix the rest of the way. Alternate adding flour, nuts and candied cherries.
  2. Drop by rounded teaspoons onto ungreased cookie sheet.
  3. Bake at 350F for 12-13 minutes. These cookies will brown very fast due to the butter content. You should remove them when the bottoms are just starting to turn brown.
