Very good! My mother-in-law lives in Michigan and sends me dried cherries several times a year. I have been searching for recipes to use them in- I will definitely make these again.

  1. Lightly grease one cookie sheet (spray oil works well for this).

  6. Bake for 25 minutes or until lightly browned on top.
  7. Let cool directly on the baking sheet resting on a rack for 10 minutes.
  8. Lower heat to 325°F.
  9. On a cutting board, cut the logs on the diagonal into 1/2-inch-thick pieces.
  10. Put back into oven for 5 minutes.
