<br>- 1 1/3 cups white sugar
<br>- 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
<br>- 1 egg
<br>- 4 1/2 cups all-purpose flour
<br>- 2 teaspoons baking powder
<br>- 1 teaspoon salt
<br>- 1/2 cup milk
<br>- 1 (12.5 ounce) can cherry pie filling
<br>- 1 egg white (for egg wash)
<br><p></p>Directions
<br>step 1: Sift together the flour, baking powder, and salt. Set aside.
<br>step 2: In a separate bowl, beat the butter, then add the sugar a little at a time. Add the vanilla. Beat the mixture until it is nice and fluffy. Beat in the egg. Stir in the flour mixture alternately with the milk.
<br>step 3: Before you use this dough, be sure you chill it well at least 2 hours or even overnight.
