These are really good. For Christmas you could put a few drops of red coloring in the frosting or use green cherries with green frosting. I will definately make these again.

What a lovely cookie recipe! A little time-consuming to make but well worth it in taste and presentation. I liked that the dough is not really sweet; it's a good balance with the sweet cherry and icing. I did add some cocoa powder to my icing mix. Thanks for sharing your recipe!
