As far back as I can remember, this was served at our holiday family gatherings. It is good to make during hot weather and we live in Florida, so it is usually still quite a tropical climate in December.(unless we get lucky with a cold front)My Mimi and Mom passed this on to me, although my Mom insists I added the cherries. Maybe I did! We have quite a few mouths to feed in our clan, so if yours is smaller, you might want to cut the recipe in half....or maybe not!
These cookies are chewy that has a crispy edge on them. They are a "huge" cookie that will delight any cookie lover... be sure to have a cold glass of milk on hand ! Our family's favorite comfort cookie by far.
