Beat butter with a mixer with powdered sugar and vanilla until light and fluffy cream.
Combine the flour with salt, sift into the butter mixture and knead the dough.
Add chopped cherries and chocolate chips, mix.
Put the dough on a cling film, form a log, press with your hands, and put in the refrigerator for an hour.
Cut the dough into round cookies, put on a baking sheet and bake in the oven at 325 F for about 15 minutes.
Cool the cookies completely, then remove them from the baking sheet and serve.
