This is slightly sweeter than normal biscuits but with added dry cherries, white chocolate chips, and walnuts. The coarse grain sugar adds crunch. New York vanilla is slightly sweeter than Madagascar or Indonesian vanillas and makes a nice backdrop for fruity flavors. You may use other vanillas.

3/4 cup cool water
1/2 cup dried cherries, chopped
1/2 cup walnut pieces
2/3 cup white chocolate chips
1/4 cup granulated sugar

melted butter for brushing on the biscuits
turbinado sugar for sprinkling

Cut the biscuits. Brush the tops with melted butter and sprinkle with turbinado sugar. Bake according to package directions.
