Cherry Vanilla Thins

Cherry Vanilla Thins
1 cup butter
1 cup sugar
1 large egg
1 tablespoon vanilla
1/2 teaspoon almond extract (optional)
2 cups flour
4 ounces dried cherries. After this batch, I found it was better to chop them up

Preheat oven to 350
Line baking sheets with parchment paper
In the bowl of the mixer, cream butter, add sugar and beat until light and fluffy. 
Add the egg and flavorings.  Mix well
Add flour slowly (or you will have flour all over the kitchen)
Beat until just blended
 Drop by tablespoons onto prepared sheets

Shown with added sprinkles
Bake for 10 to 12 minutes or until brown around the edges. 
Makes about 2 dozen.
