Cherry Oatmeal Cookies

I like to make these old-fashioned treats with raspberry chips, but cherry-flavored work well in a pinch to add color and sweetness. These cookies stack nicely for packing. —Betty Huddleston, Liberty, Indiana

    Oh my gosh, these are the best. I am a cookie-holic and these went to the top of my list. I doubled the amount of pecans (only had those on hand.) My family loves them in cookies. Did not change another thing and they were awesome. Hubbly loved them as well. Yes, will be making again often.

    I made these cookies today. Easy and tasty. I can't wait for the kids and grandkids to try them when they come over for Sunday dinner!! I think the girls will enjoy the red chips. They look so pretty and different. I will be making these again.
