I bake these cutouts for Thanksgiving and Christmas, then decorate them in the colors of the season. If I run out of time before the holidays, I simply skip the frosting step and sprinkle the colored sugar directly on the cookies before they go in the oven. The end result is just as festive and still yummy.

This recipe, given to me by a friend years ago, was one I used to save just for Christmas. But friends and family began to request them regularly, and now I buy extra candied cherries when they go on sale in December so I can make the treats all year long.
