    1. 1
      In bowl, beat butter with sugar until fluffy; beat in egg and vanilla.
    2. 2
      Then add flour and salt; stir until blended.
    3. 3
      Stir in cherries and walnuts.
    4. 4
      Divide dough into thirds; shape each into 10" (25 cm) long log.
    5. 5
      Wrap and chill until firm, at least 3 hours.
    6. 6
      Cut logs into 1/8th" or 3 mm thick rounds and place about 1 inch (2.5 cm) apart, on parchment lined baking sheets.
    7. 7
      Bake in top and bottom thirds of 325 deg F oven, rotating and switching pans halfway through, just until edges begin to colour, 8-10 minutes.
    8. 8
      These cookies brown even faster than shortbreads, so keep a close eye on them! I start checking early, and they're usually done around the 8 minute mark.
    9. 9
      Let cool on pan for 5 minutes, then transfer to wire rack and let cool completely before storing. Store layered with waxed paper in airtight container for up to 2 weeks, or freeze for up to one month.
    10. 10
      Makes about 12 dozen cookies (less, of course, if you cut them a little thicker).
    11. 11
      These are really delicious cookies, well worth the time it takes to make them!
    12. 12
      Hint: If you want to use red and green cherries do not mix the cherries in same batch, they look better if made separately!
    13. 13
      Note: chill time of 3 hours is not included in prep time.

      Made these for my dad just last week, nice tender cookie .I Just packed dough into a lined loaf pan and when well chilled almost frozen just sliced into squares. Baking time in my oven was right on. Enjoyable cookies.
