      Lennie, another Christmas cookie hit! My jelly roll pan was slightly larger than your measurements shown so next time I think I will use a smaller pan, I would prefer a slightly thicker crust. The cookies are lovely though and they do taste great! Had trouble finding enough candied cherries so I used a combination on candied cherries and candied pineapple. I don't think it altered the flavor at all and if anything just added a little interesting twist! Thanks for sharing. Tweeky.
