Cherry Delight Cookies

I was in the mood for baking today and so, decided to make my third batch of these cookies of the season.  They are a family favorite and we make them every year.  They make a great tea cookie.  Hope you enjoy them as much as we have over the years. 

Cherry Delight Cookies

1 cup of butter
1 cup white sugar
1/2 cup white Caro Syrup
2 eggs yolks (save whites)
2 1/2 cups self-rising flour
7 oz. fine ground walnuts
1 carton of candied cherries
Cream butter and sugar until fluffy.  Add egg yolks and syrup.  Keep beating, slowly add in flour.  Chill 2 hours.  Roll into small balls. Beat egg whites.  Dip rolled balls into egg whites.  Roll in walnuts.  Place on greased cookie sheet or non-stick cookie sheet.  Press in 1/2 cherry.  Bake 20 minutes at 325 degrees.
