  • 1/4 cup + 1 tbs butter, softened
  • 1 1/4 cups all-purpose flour

  • 5 maraschino cherries, finely chopped
  • 1/4 tsp salt
  • 1-1 /12 ounces of fine white chocolate, finely chopped

Preheat oven to 330 degrees.

In a bowl, beat butter with confectioners sugar, until creamy. Then add cherry juice, chopped cherries, salt, white chocolate bits and flour. Mix until completely combined.

Roll dough up in parchment paper and refrigerate for at least two hours. Then roll out evenly and use a heart shaped cookie mold to cut out the dough. Place in oven and bake for 15 minutes. Once done and completely cool, drizzle some white chocolate on top.
