In my top five favorites. Great recipe for when you are making several kinds of cookies for the holidays or if you just want one batch for a family snack.

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!
