      Excellent cookie. Have been making them every Christmas for over 20 years. A must have for every cookie platter.

      I barely got a chance to cool & decorate these cookies! My family has gobbled them up. Luckily, I was able to get at least one so I could review. lol Very easy recipe, my color paste was too old so I ended up with a funky color but they taste great. Buttery cookie with a yummy cherry surprise in the middle. Thanks for sharing, Debbie! Made for Oct 08 Think Pink tag.

      I was looking for something for my Christmas cookie platters that wasn't chocolate or peanut butter. Something colorful and different - and these certainly fit the bill. The recipe is incredibly easy and the results are lovely. Definitely a keeper.
