    I made these for Valentine's Day and cut them into hearts. I made the first batch with dried cherries only and the second batch with dried cherries and minced candied ginger--yum. I dipped half of the cookie in white chocolate, so it was really decadent. Thank you.

    Very good and extremely easy. These are the firm/dense type of shortbread and go great with a cup of tea. They were a cinch to make, the dough was very easy to handle and cut. The cherry bits make them look very festive. I sprinkled the sugar on before baking and it kind of crystalized on top a bit - very nice. Made for PAC Fall 2009.
