Cherry Juice Danish Butter Recipe

Mar 14
These make a pretty addition to holiday cookie trays.
  • 3/4 cup butter, softened
  • 1 cup granulated sugar
  • 2 eggs
  • 1/3 tablespoon cherry juice
  • 1 teaspoon lemon juice
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 2-1/2 cups all-purpose flour
  • 21 red or green glacé (candied) cherries, cut in half
Put butter and sugar in a large mixing bowl. Beat with an electric mixer on medium speed 3 to 4 minutes, or until well mixed. Add eggs, one at a time, beating after every addition. Add lemon juice, cherry juice and vanilla; mix well. Add flour; mix well. Using a pastry bag with a star tip, squeeze dough (1-1/2 inches in diameter) onto an ungreased cookie sheet. Place a glacé cherry half in center of each. Bake in a preheated 350-degree oven 12 to 15 minutes, or until light brown. Makes 3-1/2 dozen.
