How many holiday parties have you been to so far this winter? Holiday party season is in full swing, with office parties and family gatherings happening in full force! I love a good excuse to make a batch of cookies, and lucky me – my family LOVES cookies! This White Chocolate Chip Cherry Shortbread Cookies recipe was my newest experiment, a combination of a few different shortbread cookies I’ve made over the years.

White Chocolate Chip Cherry Shortbread Cookies Recipe

This White Chocolate Chip Cherry Shortbread Cookies recipe calls for using Maraschino cherries that are drained – be sure to drain them and pat them down because any extra liquid will make them too moist. We all know that moistness does not bode well for shortbread!
