1/2 cup buttermilk
3-1/2 cups flour

1-1/2 cup pecan pieces
2 cups candied cherries (halved)

Mix shortening, sugar, and eggs well. Stir in buttermilk. Blend dry ingredients; stir in. Stir in pecans, cherries and dates. Chill at least 1 hour. Drop rounded teaspoonful of dough about 2 inches apart on lightly greased baking sheet. Place a pecan half on each cookie if desired. Bake in preheated 400 degree oven for 8 to 10 minutes, until almost no imprint remains when touched lightly. Makes about 8 dozen cookies.
