WOW! These are my new favorite cookie. They are soooo WONDERFUL! So melt in your mouth...just the right amount of sweetness and the surprise cherry flavor is perfect with the outer dough. Oh YUM! I really enjoyed making these also...the dough is so soft and it butters your hands. I used whole cherries and also flattened and wrapped the dough around each one and then rolled them in my hands. Mine may have been larger than only made 20. I cooked them about 22 minutes. Thank you so much for this keeper recipe. Made for the Alphabet Soup game.
