  1. Blend together the butter, egg yolks, vanilla, salt, confectioners' sugar and flour.
  2. Take small amount of dough in hand , flatted out and wrap around drained cherry. ( I use a combination of red and green cherries and tint the icing to match the color of the cherry. )
  3. Bake on ungreased cookie sheet at 350 degrees F (175 degrees C) until golden brown (about 10 minutes).
  4. Cool and dip in tinted butter icing. Roll in coconut flakes. ENJOY!

Awesome cookie. Soft and sweet.

One of my favorite holiday cookies, a soft shortbread type with a cherry accent peeking out the top. I have never iced them, but might add that next time.
