Nice cookie. I am not a fan of cherries, but my husband ate six cookies at one time. Nice and moist, good thickness.

I had the chance to make these cookies on 5/31/18. They're great! I did grease the baking sheets for easier removal! I also took some of these cookies to sell in our coffee shop and the rest went to our pot luck meal on 6/1/18! Thank you, Wade Rouse (aka Viola Shipman)!
