"This cookie is easy to make and looks beautiful on a Christmas cookie tray. I found the flavor rather bland so I might try adding a little almond extract next time."

"One of my all-time favorite cookies. The red and green candied cherries make a tasty and pretty cookie. Haven't had a bad batch yet. Yum! Try adding some chopped pecans for a change of pace."

"We love these cookies! I always make them at Christmas time but we love them year round. Being able to make the dough the day before I bake them is always appreciated. Love the hint of nutmeg in them."
