1) Preheat oven to 150 degree celsius.
2) Sift plain flour, custard flour and cornflour in a large bowl and mix well.
3) Use an electric mixer and cream the butter and icing sugar for about 5 minutes til light and fluffy. Add in the egg yolk and vanilla extract and mix until combined.
4) Use a piping nozzle and pipe out the dough on a tray lined with parchment paper. Squeeze dough out, and twist to cut it.
5) Decorate with a piece of cherry in the centre. (Press lightly)
6) Bake in oven for 22-24 minutes. (Cookies should not turn brown.) Cool in tray for 2-3 minutes before removing and transferring to a cooling rack to cool completely before storing in an airtight container.
