Make the classic shortbread cookies red with bits of Maraschino Cherry and you will get beautiful Christmas Cookies – Maraschino Cherry Shortbread Cookies.
Although it’s just Thanksgiving, in the head of most food bloggers is Christmas . Of course, to all of you that food blogging is a full time job or a hobby, you will already have something to prepare although everyone else will prepare it a few weeks later. And since Christmas is coming in a few weeks, most of you must will be thinking about one thing and one thing only – Christmas Cookies.
In only a few minutes of searching on the internet, my bookmarks were already full of really fantastic cookie ideas. Since everyone in my family just loves cookies, I decided to make a real little series of recipes for Christmas Cookies. The only thing left was to decide with which recipe to start
There could be no other! Of all the cookies that I have prepared until now, my husband was great fan of the classic shortbread cookies with chocolate chips. In order to add a little Christmas charm, I decided to make them a litlle more red and the best ingredient for that are Maraschino Cherry and it’s beautiful red color and really specific taste.
And so, there was nothing else left but to begin the story with shortbread cookies. In my case, that meant preparing cookie dough in the form of a circular log and keeping this log alive from my husband. He even eats it unbaked. And in only one and a half hour, of which, almost an hour is cooling in the fridge, there they were, my Christmas Maraschino Cherry Shortbread Cookies smiling from the table teasing with their beautiful combination of black chocolate chips and red cherry.
As usual, the photo shoot had to be done in a very short time until my husband got his bite of these Maraschino Cherry Shortbread Cookies while they were still warm .
