Cheery Cherry Cookies Recipe

Publisher Photo
With a tall glass of ice-cold milk, a couple of cherry cookies really hit the spot for dessert or as a snack. The coconut and bits of cherries provide a fun look and texture. -Judy Clark, Elkhart, Indiana

MY REVIEW
Reviewed Apr. 5, 2014

I made these cookies as one of my Christmas cookies the family loved them. They stayed so nice and soft not a crumbly cookie. We loved the cherry taste I added more cherries than the recipe called for since cherries are a favorite of all the family members. We will continue to use it as a favorite Christmas cookie. You can also add green cherries for the Christmas season........

Instead of using maraschino cherries, I use dried cherries (found next to dried cranberries) and I also added 1/2 cup of chocolate chips. Excellent cookies!
