READY IN: 30mins
Recipe by Annacia

This recipe been around for a very long time. They are quick to make go even quicker from the cookie tray or jar. I'm just taking a guess at the weight of the cherry jar. I don't have one in the house.

When it comes to zest I usually add a bit extra [also added dried cherries instead of raisins, & that from someone who LOVES raisins!], but other than that, I followed this recipe right down the line, & came up with very tasty cherry bites made especially for the month of February!! They couldn't be better! Many thanks!
