    VillageMom's Note:

    This is a great recipe for a christmas cookie. I make it every year for the family. My kids like the chocolate chips while the grownups prefer the maraschino cherries and coconut.

      I made these for Christmas and really enjoyed them. I read the reviews and used 2/3 chocolate chips and 1/3 white chips. I'm glad I did because I think otherwise the chocolate would have overpowered the cherries. I also used part shortening and part butter. I will be making these again for the Holidays

      These are absolutely delicious. I did not get picture-perfect results, which may be because I live at high altitude. My cookies spread a lot during baking, so I will play with this recipe to see if I can overcome this next time. (And there WILL be a next time!) I substituted vanilla extract because I'm allergic to almonds. Also, I divided the dough and used white chips in half the batch, which was also delicious. I only used 1 10-oz jar of cherries, and the cookies seemed perfectly cherrylicious to me. Thanks for sharing!

      The kids really liked these. Make sure to really drain the cherries otherwise the dough will be too wet and you will get flat cookies. If that happens you can add another 1/2 cup or so of flour to the remaining dough. That's what I did.
