Tempt My Tummy Tuesday!

Welcome to our first Tempt My Tummy Tuesday's! Thanks {mis}adventures
for the great name. I was having a brain fart. So this week in preparation for Christmas I
thought I would make something Christmasy. What better then shortbread. And I must say they turned out AWESOME! Here we go!

Granny's Shortbread (yes, this is a family recipe.)
1 cup cornstartch
1 cup icing sugar
2 cups flour
1/2 tsp salt
1lb butter
candied cherries(cut in half)

Preheat oven to 350*F. In a large bowl beat butter until smooth. Then add the remaining ingredients. WARNING: turn beaters on slow or you will be covered in flour, icing sugar, and cornstarch. Mix well. It may take a few minutes to get it mixed together well. It might feel sticky. If it does add a small amount of flour until it no longer feels sticky and is able to be rolled into balls.
Roll the dough into small balls and place on cookie sheet. Place half a candied cherry into the center of the ball and press down slightly.
Place cookies in the oven and bake for about 8-10 mins. Please check them regularly so they don't burn. Back until lightly brown on the edges.

Let cookies sit on the cookie sheet for a few minutes so they don't crumble when taken off. ENJOY! mmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmm
