I made these for

I made these for the first time, with only one difference...instead of candied cherries (which I don't like), I used Craisins-brand dried sweetened cherries. The cookies were scrumptious!

I have been maki

I have been making these wonderful cookies for years!!! They are so good, in fact that I have one friend that requests them from me every year at Christmas. She has even asked for some to serve her family when they come for Christmas.
