I made these cookies today and, although they were tasty, I thought they had too much flour. I'll be going with 1 cup of flour next time. I loved the cherries and chocolate together in a cookie. This recipe is definitely worth tweaking to your own preference.

The flavor of these is nice and my guests really enjoyed them. I didn't really care for the soft texture but otherwise they were good and easy to make.

Just have to say that I am starting my Christmas baking today and this is the first batch I am doing. These cookies taste amazing and are super simple. They are always one of the first kinds of cookies to be gone!

just made & took the 1st batch out of the oven. i had to try one right away & was not disappointed. these are very good, soft, flavorful cookies and will make a nice addition to the other cookes i am making for Christmas. i used mini choc chips instead of the regular sized ones & they are just the right amount of chocolate. will definitely keep this recipe.
