This cookie is the number one favorite in our family. The recipe originated from the back of a package of Barg and Foster Cherry Chips, probably in the early 1960's. The chips are very hard to find where I live, but if you are lucky enough to find them in your area, these are wonderful!

I have been looking everywhere for the Barg and Foster recipe. Thanks for posting it! I remember making these at Christmas time!! Hope that the cherry chips that I find are as good as B&F!

Very nice recipe. I had been looking for the cherry chips for a while and just found them at my local Walmart yesterday. 3 cups of cornflakes makes 1 cup of crumbs for those of you wondering. This is a very tender cookie.. but has a nice crunch because of the cornflakes.

Lovely shortbread cookies with a crunch from the cornflakes and little bursts of color and flavor from cherry chips. Used Log House chips which I ordered from Amazon. Since they came in a 6-pack, I'm sure we'll be making these again! Thanks for sharing he recipe!
