2. Preheat the oven to 375 degrees F (190 degrees C). Lightly grease cookie sheets.

3. It’s best to dust the rolling surface heavily with powdered sugar before rolling out the dough. Please roll the dough out to 1/8 inch thickness and cut into 1×4 inch strips.

4. Place on the end of each strip a cherry. When rolling up each strip, start with the cherry then place on prepared cookie sheets and dust with a little of the powdered sugar.

5. Bake for 7 to 10 minutes in the preheated oven. Cookies should brown slightly. Make sure to dust again with the powderd sugar. Let cookies cool before serving, the cherries are very hot!
