I like to make these old-fashioned treats with raspberry chips, but cherry-flavored work well in a pinch to add color and sweetness. These cookies stack nicely for packing. —Betty Huddleston, Liberty, Indiana

"Oh my gosh, these are the best. I am a cookie-holic and these went to the top of my list. I doubled the amount of pecans (only had those on hand.) My family loves them in cookies. Did not change another thing and they were awesome. Hubbly loved them as well. Yes, will be making again often."

"These are so good but I made them before reading the reviews and used dried cherry infused cranberries thinking that is what they meant by cherry chips.. but no matter, they came out great.. next time I'll try to find the cherry chips.. very moist cookies"
