To begin, preheat the oven to 180°C (350⁰F). Start by washing the cherries and removing the pits.

TIPS: If you don’t have fresh cherries, frozen ones can be a great substitute. Just remember to roll them in a small amount of flour to prevent excess liquid from seeping into the dough.

TIPS: Feel free to experiment with different fruits in your recipes. Sour cherries or sweet cherries can be a delicious addition to your dough, giving it a unique and flavorful twist.

In a large bowl, place the softened butter and add sugar. Use a mixer at medium speed to beat the mixture until it becomes creamy.

TIPS: If your butter is too hard, a few seconds in the microwave can soften it up and make it easier to whip.

TIPS: Instead of using butter, you can opt for good quality margarine. It works just as well! But keep in mind that margarine contains salt. So, you might want to reduce the amount of salt in the recipe. Just a little heads up!
