Woo hoo! I've been looking for a good recipe for cherry icebox cookies, as they're a childhood favorite from a world-famous bakery in my hometown. I don't make my way back there very often and have missed them, so it's great to be able to make some at home. These aren't exactly the same, but they're quite close and the texture is excellent! I will definitely make them again. Thank you for posting the recipe! My family and friends of my hometown will all want to make these. :)

I've been making these cookies for several years (although I found the recipe in a community cookbook) and love them. They are easy to make. I like to make them a day ahead and let them chill overnight. I also put the baked cookies in the freezer and they turn out great. Thanks for posting!!
