Cherry Almond Shortbread Cookies Recipe

To make cherry almond shortbread cookies, you will need the following ingredients:
  • 1 cup (2 sticks) unsalted butter, softened
  • 1/2 cup granulated sugar
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 2 cups all-purpose flour
  • 1/2 cup almond flour
  • 1/2 cup dried cherries, chopped
Preheat your oven to 325°F (165°C) and line a baking sheet with parchment paper.
 
In a large mixing bowl, cream together the butter, sugar, and salt until light and fluffy. Add the flour and almond flour and mix until a dough forms. Stir in the chopped cherries.
 
Roll out the dough on a lightly floured surface until it is about 1/4-inch thick. Use a cookie cutter or a knife to cut the dough into your desired shape and transfer the cookies to the prepared baking sheet.
 
Bake the cookies for 15-20 minutes, or until they are lightly golden and firm to the touch. Let the cookies cool on the baking sheet for a few minutes before transferring them to a wire rack to cool completely.
 
Enjoy your cherry almond shortbread cookies! You can store them in an airtight container at room temperature for up to a week.
