This is a winner recipe for sure! They were easy to prepare, which is always a bonus when I'm doing my Christmas -time baking. They came out tender and moist, and I especially loved the flavor of the dried cherries -- not overly sweet, and full of flavor. The cookies were even better the second day -- so buttery and rich. Delicious! I was making these cookies as part of a holiday platter, so I did drizzle some white chocolate glaze over the tops for a little decoration, and I received lots of compliments on your recipe. I'm so glad I have this to add to my cookie collection. Thanks!
What a lovely surprise these icebox cookies were. They were incredible Bugsy Mate. So flavorful, crisp and tender, we couldn't stop eating them. We really enjoyed the subtle hint of cinnamon in this easy to make butter cookie. I used dried cheeries and dried raspberries. I can't wait to make these again. Another winner from Bugsy. Thanks so much for sharing. I should tell you that I made chocolate chip cookies also and these disappeared first. Kudos to you.
