      I hate giving bad reviews but these cookies just weren't what I was expecting. I made them the first time for my son's Valentine's Day party and followed the exact recipe but they seemed dry and I couldn't taste very much cherry and I didn't really like the almond. So the 2nd time, I added more cherries, used butter instead of margarine, used vanilla instead of almond and rolled them in the red sugar as suggested. Still no cherry taste. I made them today for Thanksgiving and used even MORE cherries and I just can't get the flavor that I've been looking for. The cookie itself is good, it's just lacking the cherry flavor.

      Even after adding vast amounts more cherry to the mixture, these didn't have a strong cherry taste to them and therefor the cookies were rather bland.

      We make these in my family ever year for Christmas. We follow this exact recipe to a T. There are never any left. We fill the center with homemade chocolate ganache instead of kisses (after baking, make a small indentation in the center of the cookie and fill with the ganache ).
