"Great flavor. They seemed to spread out, a flatter cookie than I like. I baked for 14 minutes and next time will only do 12 minutes."

"These were fabulous! I didn't have cherries ....used cranberries and I didn't have quick cook oats...used old fashion oats (cook in 5 mins) and they were great! Thank you Denise!"
