I just got done making these, so glad the recipe is on here. I will take a picture and post it as they turned out fabulous...i think next time though I will cut the dried cherries in half as mine were pretty big....

The taste is great, but I don't believe I let them cool long enough before slicing. I had a few broken pieces.. so I ate them! Yum, this recipe was in a cookbook my Grandma gave me for my 21st birthday.
