Recipe Ingredients:

2 1/2 cups all-purpose flour
1 cup granulated sugar
1/2 teaspoon baking soda
1/2 teaspoon baking powder
1/2 teaspoon salt
3 large eggs
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
2/3 cup dried cherries, chopped (less than a 3-ounce package)
1 cup ground almonds

Cooking Directions:

  1. Preheat oven to 350°F (175°C). Lightly grease one cookie sheet.
  2. Combine flour, sugar, baking soda, baking powder and salt. Add eggs and vanilla, beating until dough is formed. Stir in cherries and almonds.
  3. Turn the dough out on lightly floured surface and knead several times. Using the greased cookie sheet as a surface, divide the dough in half and form into two flat logs about 9-inches long and 3-inches wide.

  6. Store in airtight container.
