      A very close family friend shared this recipe with me a few years ago. I include these in my gift boxes of "goodies" that I give at Christmas. They are a delicious, soft and fudgy cookie with a delightful cherry inside. If you are a cherry fan I think you will be pleased with this one.

      Very yummy. They come out of the oven a bit hard, but soften up once cooled and stored. The frosting/topping cools and gets hard pretty quickly. I made 2 sheets worth of the bottoms then put cherries and topping on. I had to rewarm and add more cherry juice for the next 2 sheets as it set up in between.

      This is a very nice Christmas cookie. It taste like a Devil's Food cookie that I have eaten before. Thanks for the recipe.
