Quick, easy and a great way to dress up some refrigerated cookie dough. The kids loved these after school. Used finely crushed Total for wheat flakes which gives a nice bit of crunch to the cookie. Cherries really should be patted dry with a paper towel. Thanks, Katie, for sharing the recipe!

Chocolate chips and maraschino cherries, yummy! I did finely crush the cereal before rolling cookie dough. So simple and good tasting!
