LOCATION

Directions

  • 1 Heat oven to 425°F. In 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 side of bowl and forms a ball. Stir in cherries.
  • 2 On ungreased cookie sheet, drop dough by about 1/3 cupfuls about 1 inch apart. Brush with milk. Sprinkle with additional sugar if desired.
  • 3 Bake 10 to 15 minutes or until light brown. Immediately remove from cookie sheet. Serve warm or cool.
