    Ingredients
    Makes: 4 to 5 dozen

    • 340g softened butter
    • 90g icing sugar
    • 280g plain flour
    • 90g cornflour
    • halved glaced cherries, to decorate

    Method
    Prep:20min  ›  Cook:20min  ›  Ready in:40min 

    1. Using an electric whisk, cream the butter and sugar until fluffy. Gradually add plain flour and cornflour, whisking until well blended.
    2. Using a heaping teaspoon for each biscuit, roll into balls with floured hands to prevent sticking. Place on a baking tray lined with parchment, about 2 to 3cm apart. Gently press down on each biscuit with a floured fork, then place a halved glace cherry in the centre.
    3. Bake at 150 C / Gas 2 for 20 minutes or until bottoms are lightly browned. Cool for 5 minutes before moving from baking tray to wire racks.

    I bake for a voluntary group and these cookies elicit compliments and smiles every time. Plus they look so cheerful, melt in the mouth and are not overly sweet. Every time I can't think of what to make next, I return to this recipe very happily.  -  14 Oct 2017
