    William (Uncle Bill) Anatooskin's Note:

    These are very easy to make shortbread cookies. They are so good that they melt in your mouth, you hardly have to chew them. I have been making them for over 35 years.

      Bill, these were just super easy to make. I had them done and cooling on my counter in no time at all. Instead of the cherries, I just used Christmas sprinkles. They are, as you said, melt in your mouth. I'll be making these again. Thanks for the recipe!

      These have got to be the easiest shortbread cookies in the universe! Besides being so easy they are a taste of Heaven, a melt in your mouth cookie. These will be a regular around here; especially on the Holiday table!

      These cookies are so delicious. As well as really tasty, they are the simplest cookies I have ever made. 10 minutes in the oven and my cookies were ready to come out. Do try!
