Cherry Crunch Cookies

1 3/4 cups Flour
1/2 t salt
1/2 t cinnamon
1/2 t baking soda
3/4 cup butter
1/2 cup brown sugar
1/2 t vanilla
2 Tablespoons Milk
1 cup chopped candied cherries
3/4 cup chopped pecans
1/2 cup chopped filberts (hazelnuts). I couldn’t find these so I added more pecans

Mix all ingredients together except the cherries and nuts. Fold in the cherries and nuts.
Place 1/2 the mixture onto saran wrap and shape into tube. Place in freezer for 30 mins. Slice about 1/2 inch thick. Bake at 350 for 10 minutes.

I love Old Fashioned recipes. This Christmas cookie recipe will not disappoint. Baking with candied cherries may sound scary. It’s not. They taste so good in this vintage recipe.

What I think is wonderful is how you have honored your teachers special gift as well as the great love of your mother and yourself who makes cookies like this every year. It's very special so I dont think your cookies could not be anything but wonderful.

Wow! This is very similar to my moms cherry crunch cookie, it was from her Betty Crocker cookbook that she received at her 1961 wedding shower. We used maraschino cherries, candied dates and nuts. As a kid I didn’t like that any of those ingredients, but love these cookies. The book called for rolling them into balls and rolling in corn flakes. My mom used Frosted Flakes lol and added half a cherry on top. Hopefully, I will be making these saturday!

Wow, that brings back some memories. I recall going on a "field trip" to Mr Steckelberg's wood shop in their garage, and we all received Bicentennial dollar coins that were inlaid in a block of wood. She lived about a block away, so it was a short walk through New Troy.
