ITALIAN BUTTER COOKIES
226 gm butter, at room temperature
1/2 cup sugar
1 1/2 teaspoons vanilla extract
2 1/4 cup plain flour
1 tablespoon milk
100 gm pkt glace cherries quartered
Preheat oven to 350 f (180 c).
line a baking tray.
In a mixer, cream together butter and sugar.
Add vanilla, milk and egg.
Slowly mix in flour and salt.
Use star tip fitted on a piping bag to make a swirl and then press a piece of cherry into the center.
Bake 8-10 minutes.
Cool on rack.
i found these very hard to pipe so
if you don't have a piping bag or don't want to pipe, roll teaspoonfuls of mix into balls and place a piece of cherry in centre.
not as pretty but taste the same.
