People eagerly anticipate these tasty cookies as part of our "season's eatings" each year. The surprise cherry center surrounded by a fluffy cookie makes this treat especially fun. With the chocolate coating, they're almost like candy—and always the first to go!
My husband and two sons try other chocolate chip cookies and tell me there's no comparison with mine. And my husband doesn't even like chocolate! These cookies are nice and crisp, but be sure to not overbake them. —Cindy Utter, Jacksonville, Illinois
Back in the '30s, my grandmother found this recipe on a cereal box. For moist, flavorful oatmeal cookies, these can't be beat! They make a tasty snack that's convenient to take along on family outings. —Diane Maughan, Cedar City, Utah
THIS cookie recipe comes close to the wonderful taste of chocolate that Mama was able to produce in her cakes and cookies.
Because of the "crackles" in these cookies, my granddaughter tells me I've made a mistake when I bake them. "But they taste so good," she adds.

These wonderfully moist morsels are too tempting to resist. "They melt right in your mouth," comments Charolette Westfall of Houston, Texas. "They're simple to fix, too." Rather than sprinkling the chocolate tips with nuts, you can roll them in red and green jimmies or leave them plain. Either way, Charolette's are real treats!— Charolette Westfall, Houston, Texas
These moist treats will have everyone reaching for more. Folks tell me they enjoy the cookies. In fact, the batches I make ahead for my family and store in the freezer seem to mysteriously disappear each year—even though the chocolate topping I put on before serving hasn't been added yet! —Judy Wilder, Mankato, Minnesota
