Something different for Christmas treat.
In a large bowl, combine flour and 1/2 cup sugar; cut in butter until crumbly. Knead in the cherries, 2/3 cup white chocolate and extract until dough forms a ball.
Shape into 3/4-inch balls. Place 2 in. apart on ungreased baking sheets. Flatten slightly with a glass dipped in remaining sugar. Bake at 325 degrees F for 10-12 minutes or until edges are lightly browned. Remove to wire rack to cool.
In a microwave-safe bowl, melt shortening and remaining white chocolate at 70% power; stir until smooth. Dip half of each cookie into chocolate; sprinkle with coarse sugar and edible glitter. Place on waxed paper until set. Store in an airtight container.
