This was so much easier than I thought and DH and I both thought they had a nice taste. I used pecans and thought a few more wouldn't hurt (same with the cherries). I got 74 cookies from the batch. Next time DH and I thought we might try dipping part of each cookie in some melted chocolate to coat just to add some decadence. Thanks for a nice recipe.
