Directions:
Preheat oven to 400. In a large bowl, cream butter, shortening and sugar until light and fluffy. Beat in eggs, orange peel and extract. Gradually beat in flour. Divide dough in half; tint one portion green with food coloring.

For each wreath, shape two 6 inch ropes using 2 t. plain dough for one and 2 t. green for the other. Place the two ropes side by side; press together lightly, then twist several times. Shape into a circle, pinching ends to seal. Place the wreaths 2 inches apart on ungreased baking sheets. Repeat with the remaining dough.

Cut candied cherries into small pieces and place on wreaths to decorate as desired, pressing lightly to adhere. Bake cookies 6 - 8 minutes or until set and bottoms are light brown.

Remove from pans to wire racks to cool. Store in an airtight container.
