"just made & took the 1st batch out of the oven. i had to try one right away & was not disappointed. these are very good, soft, flavorful cookies and will make a nice addition to the other cookes i am making for Christmas. i used mini choc chips instead of the regular sized ones & they are just the right amount of chocolate. will definitely keep this recipe."

"I made these cookies a couple of days ago and they are delicious. They will definitely be a new favorite. The recipe states it makes 5 dozen. However, they would have to be tiny to make that many. I made what I call normal size and it made 2 dozen. Also, make sure the maraschino cherries are well drained."

"This is the same recipe used by my mother back in the 50's. She entered it in a bak-off contest for the PTA and won a blue ribbon. I now make them every Christmas in her honor. They are always a big hit. I use candied cherries whch give the cookie a nice chewy effect. Peggy from Norridge,IL"

"I made these for our holiday church bazaar, as I wanted something pretty and different. I used walnuts since I was out of pecans, and baked them at 350deg. Also I wanted a larger cookie, so I only got 39, not 5 doz. I was very pleased and will make this yummy cookie again, using pecans. I also think you could use whatever one liked for the cherries, chips and pecans. I may experiment as this recipe is nice and basic. And they look like the picture!"

"I forgot the chocolate chips in the first batch I baked. We thought they were very good without the chips. We put the chips in the next batch and they were good. We have decided we like the ones without best and will make these more often. They have become one of the favorites for each year."

"The cookies tasted great, but I had a problem with them spreading way too much. I know I didn't overdo the butter, so I'll have to try it again to see if I can keep them from spreading."
