White Chocolate Cherry Shortbread Cookies

YAY! We are in full Christmas Baking Mode and after our first attempt at a new cookie recipe was a flop, we are super excited to share a new White Chocolate Cherry Shortbread Cookie recipe with you that is yummy!

Original Recipe

The original recipe can be found at Better Homes and Gardens.

Our Changes
Next time, I would change the 1/2 cup of cherries to 3/4 cup of cherries.

Here is what we did:
Drain and chop cherries.
Cut in butter to dry ingredients.

Finely chop white chocolate.
Knead cookie dough (this took quite a bit of effort in order for the dough to form).
Form dough balls.

Press down cookie balls.
Bake cookies.

Cool cookies.
Melt white chocolate.
Dip and decorate.

Family Thoughts

These cookies are not your traditional sweet shortbread. Because there is only 1/2 cup of sugar in them, the actual cookie dough is nothing to write home about. It is good, but not stellar. However, when you dip them in white chocolate, it brings just enough sweetness to the cookie to make them rather yummy!


  1. Definitely making these for Christmas!

  2. these will go great with my christmas cookies box thanks for sharing

  3. I have been looking for a shortbread cookie that is not so sweet and this sounds like the perfect recipe to try. I love the idea of dipping in white chocolate, really very decadent.

  4. Perfect to bring to my parents place for Christmas. My mom loves white chocolate and my dad is a cherry freak when it comes to any sort of baked items. Best of both worlds, I can't lose!

  5. these are definitely my kind of cookie, I love the cherries and the white chocolate so I will be adding these to my list of Christmas cookies. I can almost taste them already :-)
