Recipe: German Christmas Cookies

1 cup butter
3/4 cup sugar
2 egg yolks
1 cup ground walnut meats
1 3/4 cups cake flour

2 egg whites
Candied cherries

Cream butter and sugar, add egg yolks and beat, then walnuts and flour. Chill, then form into small balls. Beat egg whites and put a dab on top of each cookie. Top with piece of cherry. Bake in moderate oven (350) about 15 minutes. Notes: These are somewhat similar to Pecan Balls but a little less “sandy” because of the egg yolks and increased sugar. The topping makes a pretty cookie.
