Christmas Bells

Adapted from Great Holiday Baking Book

  • 3/4 c margarine, softened
  • 1/2 c granulated sugar
  • 1 whole egg yolk
  • 1 3/4 c unbleached flour
  • 1 tsp pure vanilla extract
  • 12 whole maraschino cherries, drained and halved
In a mixing bowl, combine margarine, sugar, egg yolk, flour, and vanilla extract. Mix until smooth. Shape into a roll 1 1/2" thickness. Wrap in plastic wrap and chill for two hours. Preheat oven to 375. Cover two baking sheets with wax paper. Unwrap cookie dough and cut the log into 1/4" slices. Place slices one inch apart on the baking sheet. Fold two edges of each cookie over the center so that they overlap and each cookie has a point on one end and a rounded bell shape on the other. Tuck a cherry half into each cookie. Bake for ten minutes or until cookies are pale golden brown. Store in airtight container.
