Cherry Filling



Instructions

  1. In a mixing bowl, cream the butter and shortening; gradually add sugar. Add egg, milk and vanilla extract.
  2. Combine dry ingredients; gradually add to creamed mixture. Mix well. Cover and refrigerate for at least 2 hours.
  3. Meanwhile, make Cherry Filling.
  4. Roll out dough on a lightly floured surface to 1/8-inch thickness; cut with a 2 1/2-inch heart-shaped cookie cutter dipped in flour. Place half of the cookies on greased baking sheets; spoon 1/2 teaspoon filling in the center of each. Use a 1 1/2-inch heart-shaped cutter to cut small hearts out of the other half of the cookies. (Bake small heart cutouts separately.) Place the remaining hearts over filled cookies; press edges together gently. Fill centers with additional filling if needed. Sprinkle with sugar.
  5. Bake at 375 degrees F for 8 to 10 minutes or until lightly browned. Cool on wire racks.
  6. Cherry Filling: Combine sugar and cornstarch in a small saucepan. Add juices, cherries and butter. Bring to a boil; boil and stir for 1 minutes.
  7. Chill.

Yields about 4 1/2 dozen filled cookies.
