Buttery Shortbread Cookies with chocolate and cherries! They are so easy to make and very pretty too!
Shortbread cookies are by far one of my favorites. Because you make one batch, there is no waiting and scooping and tray after tray of cookies.
However, you still get 3 1/2 dozen cookies with this recipe, all in under 30 minutes!
Chocolate covered cherries are one of my husband’s favorite candies. I’m not a huge fan, I’ll be honest. But these cookies are even better than those candies. Seriously, cause they’re cookies!
Since today is Father’s Day I thought it only fitting to make my husband’s favorite candy in a cookie! By using a traditional shortbread cookie base, I added in some maraschino cherries and juice, and of course, mini chocolate chips!
Happy Father’s day to the most wonderful man in my life. You are a blessing to our children, patient and kind. You are great with homework (especially since I can’t understand 5th grade math) and you are a perfect role model! Thanks honey for being in my life!!
