Ingredients Nutrition


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

  3. Blend flour, sugar, baking soda, baking powder and salt. Add eggs and vanilla, beating until dough is formed.

  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.
  11. Turn over and bake 5 more minutes.
  12. Remove from cookie sheet and cool on baking rack.
  13. Store in airtight container.

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.

Made these tonight for my christmas baking. I did dip them in chocolate as the recipe suggested--dark chocolate, to be specific. They are divine. Perfect texture and wonderful flavor, even without the white chocolate, which I did not have on hand. thanks for posting!
