I found a great recipe for shortbread recently and I knew I wanted to jazz it up a bit and create a delicious cookie for Valentines day. We don't really go all out for Valentines around our house, but it's fun to make something a little different!

This cookie recipe has only 5 ingredients and it's quite easy to make. They really are melt-in-your-mouth delicious too.  Adding the cherries really takes them to a new level. Although if you just want to make the shortbread, I've included easy instructions on shaping it without the cherries as well.

Step 1: Ingredients

  • 1 cup butter, softened {2 cubes}
  • 1/2 cup powdered sugar
  • 1/4 cup cornstarch
  • 1 1/2 cups all-purpose flour
  • 1 tsp almond extract
  • 1 jar maraschino cherries, plus 1 TBSP liquid from jar

Assemble Ingredients and lay cherries out on a paper towel to absorb the moisture.
<p>well... they even taste bad</p>
