MY REVIEW
Reviewed Dec. 28, 2012

"I have used this recipe for three years and absolutely love it. The only change I make to it is that instead of candied cherries I use dried cherries. Friends and family love it because they are not overly sweet. However, I have never gotten more then 4 -5 dozen cookies, usually only 4. Not a complaint, merely an observation! Love them!"
