Directions

Cream the butter, sugar, and vanilla thoroughly. Sift together the flour and salt, add to the butter, and mix. Fold in the nuts and cherries and chill the dough for 1 hour.

Preheat the oven to 400 degrees F.

Roll the dough into 1-inch balls and place on an ungreased cookie sheet (they do not spread as they bake). Bake until set but do not brown, about 10 minutes.

While still warm but set, roll the cookies in confectioners' sugar and cool. Roll in confectioners' sugar again and bake again for 10 to 12 minutes.

    I thought the cherries in these were so nasty I threw them away

    These cookies are absolutely delicious. I didn't use the cherries because I didn't have any, but they were still great. I'll definately add the cherries next time I make them. Btw, I was reading the reviews for this same recipe on the Food Network Web Site, and some people noted that there is an error in the recipe in that Gale didn't cook them a second time, like the recipe notes.
