Fruit & Nut Shortbread
- - - - - - - - - - - - - -

1/2 pound butter
1 cup brown sugar
1 egg yolk
2 cups flour
2/3 cup glace cherries halved
1/2 cup chopped walnuts or pecans

Cream butter and sugar together. Add egg yolk. Gradually add all of the flour. Gently mix in the cherries and nuts. Take about half of the dough and put on a large piece of wax paper. Using the wax paper shape it into a long log roll about 2" in diameter. Roll the log up in the wax paper. Chill several hours or longer.

When the rolls are cold and firm take a sharp knife and cut into thin slices - about 1/8th" thick. You can leave the wax paper on to do this if it works best for you. Remove the wax paper from each cookie and place on greased cookie sheet.

Bake at 375 degrees for 10 minutes or until the edges are slightly brown.

These cookies can be kept in an airtight tin or frozen. The recipe doubles very well - that's what I do because these cookies are popular with everyone.
