These were yummy, yummy cookies! I doubled the recipe for my Xmas trays and they went over in a big way (one person said they tasted like Chunky candy bars!?). I could only find granola cereal with raisins but I didn't think that was right, so I picked the raisins out! I needed 10 minutes and got just about 3 dozen out of each batch. My only suggestion would be to chop the cherries smaller or use more...some cookies ended up with 2 pieces and some with none and let me tell you, the cherries MAKE these cookies! Thanks for posting... tell Harry I said "thanks" too!
