    JeanieK's Note:

    I've had this recipe longer than the friend that I got it from!!! This is a MUST every time there is a holiday or I'm asked to bring cookies for an event. My family devours them. They are very easy to make and it's a different recipe than any of the others I've seen with the same name. I sometimes have to add a little more cream to the dough if it appear too dry. We've made them with the frosting and without, dusting them with powdered sugar. Both ways are delicious!

      These were very good. My mom suggested just dipping them in melted chocolate. Will be made often.

      This recipe is why I chose JeanieK for the Fall PAC 2009. I've had this sitting in my cookbook for months wanting to try these for Christmas. My MIL and my dad love chocolate covered cherries. I thought this would be something they would like. So I made a test run by doing half a recipe. And then I took half of those cherries and soaked them in rum for 24 hours. To tell the adult version from the kid safe ones I sprinkled red sugar on the frosting for the kids. My sugar was fine so it didn't stand out but it did give them a pretty little sparkle. I don't like cherries but I decided that I should try these before giving them to my test subjects. I liked the plain cherry to my surprise but I didn't like the rum soaked ones. My test subjects on the other hand had no problem with either. I will be making these for the holidays. Thanks JeanieK!
