Cherry Snowdrops: A shortbread cookie made with dried cherries, perfect for Christmas baking.

Welcome to Day Three of Cookie Week! Today’s cookies are Cherry Snowdrops. These cookies are lovely. The icing sugar on the outside is so sweet, and then the dried cherries inside are so tart, and the cookie itself is a nice shortbread.
These cookies were Paige’s choice, my oldest daughter. We only have them at Christmas and they are so nice with a hot cup of tea, or a tall glass of cold milk, in Paige’s case. The original recipe is from a good old Martha Stewart Living, Dec. 2004 -okay now I feel old, with just a few changes. Enjoy!
