I like these, though they aren't really what I think of when I think shortbread. I will be making them again, though. We thought they tasted a bit like homemade caramels, and they are pretty, ...
I doubled the recipe and added all mixed chopped fruit instead of just cherries - they were wonderful! Watch them when they bake though - they can brown quickly.
