Ingredients

How to make it

  • Preheat oven to 375.
  • Mix flour, baking powder and salt in a bowl.
  • In separate bowl, beat butter and sugar together until creamy. Beat in eggs, one at a time; add vanilla. Stir into flour mixture. Add cherries and nuts. Roll dough into large ball, then, divide into halves.
  • Roll dough into two 12” logs. This is easier if you flour your hands. Place onto large cookie sheet and flatten logs so that they’re about 2”-3” wide each.
  • Bake at 375 for about 20 minutes or until lightly browned. Cool on baking rack.
  • LOWER OVEN TEMP to 325.
  • Cut loaves into thick slices, about 3/4" each, about 16 per log. Place cut side down on cookie sheet. Bake for about ten minutes; remove from oven and turn over. Bake about ten more minutes. Cool on baking rack.
  • Dip one end into melted chocolate. Place on waxed paper until chocolate sets.
  • Caution! You won’t be able to eat just one!
  • Yumm! Enjoy!
