Cherry Pecan Shortbread

These are similar to a cookie called Santa's Whiskers, but those are coated in coconut. I think the coconut is supposed to be the whiskers, so I can't really call these Santa's Whiskers. Anyway, these are not too-sweet and are nice with a cup of coffee or tea.

Cherry Pecan Shortbread
1 c. butter
1 c. sugar
1 1/2 t. almond flavoring
2 T. milk
2 1/2  c. flour
3/4 c. chopped candied cherries
3/4 c. chopped pecans
Cream the butter, sugar and almond flavoring. Add the milk. Beat in the flour until just mixed. Fold in the cherries and pecans. Roll into a log. Refrigerate at least 2 hours. Slice off 1/4 to 1/2 inch pieces. Bake at 350 for 10 minutes, or until lightly brown on the bottoms.
