25g glace cherries
100g self-raising flour
50g caster sugar
*Cut the cherries into small pieces. Sift the flour and mix with the cherries. Cream the butter and sugar until soft(very important), add the flour mixture, work together with your fingers.
*Form into 12-14 balls. Place on lightly greased baking sheets and bake in the centre of a preheated oven (160C/325F/Gas mark 3) for 15 minutes. Don't over do it as it can easily be burnt.
*Take out and leave to cool down. Shortbreads get really hard upon contact with air so they may seem a bit soft when you first take them out. Don't worry that's absolutely fine.
