  • In a separate bowl, stir together the flour, baking soda, nutmeg and salt. Add flour mixture to the butter mixture and beat until well mixed. Cover and chill at least 3 hours.

  • Preheat oven to 325 degree F.

  • Separate egg and slightly beat egg white. Shape dough into 1-inch balls. Roll in egg white and then in the nuts. Place 2 inches apart on an ungreased cookie sheet.

  • Cut each cherry into 6-8 wedges. Place 4 or 5 wedges atop each ball so that it looks like a flower; press lightly. Bake for 15-18 minutes. Remove and cool on rack.
