My mother discovered this recipe a couple years ago in the Winnipeg Free Press submitted by a woman who has been making them for decades. They're a perfect two bite treat with a blend of flavours that makes them seem much fancier than your average cookie but they're still relatively simple.

Do yourself a favour and buy the ingredients for a double batch because the first one will disappear nearly instantly.

Method

This is divided into two stages for ease. Note the shortbread shells actually work well for other fillings too if you're so inclined.

The Final Product

Crisp but buttery shell gives way to delightfully moist and fluffy almond center with sweetness of cherry adding an extra something. Too easy to eat 3 of these in a row.
