Greek Christmas Cookies

Greek Christmas Cookies

1 cup butter or margarine, (2 sticks)
2 cups powdered sugar
2 cups flour
1 tsp. ground cinnamon
1/2 tsp. ground nutmeg
1/2 tsp. ground cloves
1/8 tsp. salt
1 large egg yolk
2 cups blanched almonds, ground
About 1 cup red candied cherries, each cut in half

Heat oven to 350. In large bowl, with mixer at low speed, beat
margarine with powdered sugar until blended. Increase speed to high;
beat until light and creamy. At low speed, beat in flour, cinnamon,
nutmeg, cloves, salt and egg yolk. With hand, knead in almonds.

Roll dough into 1-inch balls (dough will be crumbly). Place balls,
about 2 incehs apart on ungreased large cookie sheet. Gently press a
cherry half on top of each ball. Bake 15 minutes or until bottoms of
cookies are lightly browned. Remove to wire rack to cool. Repeat
with remaining dough and cherries. Makes about 6 dozen cookies.
