These are fun and simple to make. My boys like these made with just candied cherries. I love the look of red and green mixed together.

I made these cookies for the first time today, 12/15/13 from my new Taste of Home Christmas recipe book! I DID adjust the recipe since I didn't have dates! I also omitted the walnuts & used about 1 Tbsp. of crushed candy canes/peppermint baking bits (Andes Mints brand peppermint bits), 2/3 cup candied fruit mix & added about 1/2 cup of toffee baking bits! I baked 20 minutes at 300o F! The next time, I just might use sweetened flaked coconut instead of the walnuts! This recipe was really good and I plan on using it again! I don't usually make meringue kisses like this, but when I sampled a couple of these kisses, it was like biting into air-they were so puffy & light and really pretty, too! The recipe made about 4 dozen cookies! Thank you, Jo Ann Blomquist, for this recipe! delowenstein

They were so easy to make and turned out exactly as pictured. I took an entire batch to my parents, and they LOVED them.
