DIRECTIONS

  • Cream the butter. Gradually add the sifted confectioners' sugar, creaming well.
  • Blend in the unbeaten egg and vanilla. Add the sifted flour; mix well.
  • Stir in the pecan halves and cherry halves. (I like to substitute some yellow candied pineapple for a portion of the cherries to add more color to the cookies. Cut the pineapple into pieces about the size of the cherry halves.).
  • Chill the dough 1 hour.
  • Divide the dough into thirds. Shape into rolls 12 inches long. Wrap each roll in waxed paper or foil; chill at least 3 hours.
  • Preheat oven to 325 degrees F. Cut each roll into slices 1/8th inch thick and place on ungreased cookie sheets.
  • Bake in preheated oven for 13 to 15 minutes or until edges are delicately browned.
