    Kree's Note:

    This is another Christmas favorite in my house! I used to have so much fun pressing the cherries onto each cookie when I was younger. These cookies are sweet and delicious, both with and without the nuts! Cook time is if you bake about a dozen at a time.

      Very good and very easy! I made these tonight for my son's preschool Xmas party tomorrow. My husband was instructed to start steps 1-4.....he put the egg whites in the dough mix and threw out the egg yolks! Anyway, I omitted step 6 (no egg whites/no nuts in case of unknown nut allergies for the kids) and baked them; they turned out just fine. I sprinkled them with powdered sugar too. Thanks, Kree! (Next time I will be not be splitting the task of baking these with DH!) Grrrr! LOL!

      Very good! Not too sweet and very tasty. I made 2 batches with nuts, one without, and one with coconut instead. The coconut batch was fantastic! I cooked 1 batch 20 minutes and reduced it to 17 for the others, but I think I may have made them a bit small as I got about 55 cookies out of this recipe. Great for Christmas cookie baskets!

      Just made this recipe. I melted white chocolate chips and drizzled them over the top. My very picky girls really liked it, but this time they're getting sent across country!
