Ingredients

  • 2 cups all-purpose flour

  • 1/4 cup sugar

  • 2 teaspoons grated lemon peel

  • 1 1/2 teaspoons cream of tartar

  • 3/4 teaspoon baking soda

  • 1/4 teaspoon salt

  • 1/2 cup firm butter, cut into 8 pieces

  • 1/3 to 1/2 cup buttermilk

  • 1/2 cup Mariani Dried Cherries

  • About 1 tablespoon milk

    Instructions

    • 1. Heat oven to 425°F. In a medium bowl, mix flour, sugar, lemon peel, cream of tartar, baking soda, and salt. Cut in butter, using pastry blender (or pulling 2 table knives through ingredients in opposite directions), until mixture looks like fine crumbs. Stir in enough buttermilk so dough leaves the side of the bowl and forms a ball. Stir in cherries.

    • 2. On an ungreased cookie sheet, drop dough by 1/3 cupfuls about 1 inch apart. Brush with milk.

    • 3. Bake 10 to 15 minutes or until light brown. Immediately remove from cookie sheet and serve warm or cool.
