Directions:
Cream butter and sugar. Add vanilla and beat with mixer. Add vanilla and beat. Add flour a little at a time and beat. Put cookies into the cookie press. Turn the handle and form a circle on a cookie sheet. They will look like small wreaths. Add cherries for decoration at the top. Cut the red cherries in half and cut the green cherries in fourths. Put one red cherry in the center at the top of the wreath and put a green cherry on each side to resemble a leaf.
Bake at 350 for 20 minutes.

Personal Notes:
I make them at Christmas and give them as gifts. They are pretty and delicious. Very buttery and fattening! You will need a cookie press. The type that makes a log with lines on it. I bend the prongs in slightly. I like the hand press not the electric one, it makes better cookies.
