This recipe is a favorite because it's so quick, easy and economical and yet looks and tastes so special. It is loved by children and adults alike.
Prepare a greased and floured baking tray. Rub the butter into the flour, add sugar then the well beaten egg and mix together. Take small knobs of the mixture and dip each knob into castor sugar and place on baking tray. Put half a cherry on each and bake in a hot oven until golden brown.
Don't make buttons too big as they spread in the cooking
