Preparation of the recipe:

Preheat oven to 350 degrees F.

In a mixing bowl and using an electric mixer, combine butter, flour, icing sugar and vanilla extract; mix until mixture is a smooth consistency.

Prepare cookie sheets with parchment paper.

Spoon out dough onto parchment lined cookie sheets by teaspoonfuls or by tablespoons for larger cookies, spacing about 2 inches apart.

Cut maraschino cherries into quarters and place one piece in the middle of each cookie, alternating with red and green cherries.

Bake in preheated 350 F oven for 13 to 15 minutes or until bottom of cookies are lightly browned, DO NOT OVERBAKE.

Remove from oven and let cool on cookie sheet for about 5 minutes.

Transfer onto wire racks to finish cooling.

Store in a container with a lid and separate each layer with wax paper.

NOTE: If you wish to add some flavor to the cookies, add 1 teaspoon of pure vanilla extract or almond extract.

Use sprinkles, half an almond or half a cashew or chocolate to the top of the cookies before baking.

A thumbprint in the cookie, filled with your choice of jam is very tasty.

It has been suggested that the cookies be refrigerated for at least 1/2 hour before baking for a different texture.
