These are a really nice little cookie.Unfortunately I had to use all red cherries ( I live in the town that time forgot!!),but I can imagine that with the green running through them they would look very festive indeed.They were so easy to make,and the smells coming from the oven were definately festive!! The children have been giving them the thumbs up,and next time,we'll be making them altogether for our christmas cookie collection.Thanks Sydney Mike.Made for ZaarTag.
