"Loved these! As did my grandson who is VERY hard to please."
"Great flavor. They seemed to spread out, a flatter cookie than I like. I baked for 14 minutes and next time will only do 12 minutes."
"In love this recipe. Very pleased that they weren't' terribly sweet. they make a great snack."
"Loved it, I added more cherries & chips"
"Very good! I made them for a Christmas cookie exchange and they went fast!!"
"These were fabulous! I didn't have cherries ....used cranberries and I didn't have quick cook oats...used old fashion oats (cook in 5 mins) and they were great! Thank you Denise!"
