    LAURIE's Note:

    Millie my neighbor used to make these for us all the time. I loved the rich buttery taste and the cherry and almond flavor. Cooking time does not include chilling time.

      Very good. Next time I'll double the almond extract because we couldn't really taste it. I rolled them in sugar and then flattened them slightly and they came out glittery and very pretty.

      These ended up our favorite cookies this holiday season! I did take the advise of another rater and doubled the extract-perfect!

      Amazing, my mom and I loved them. My siblings, 6 and 9 didn't, probably better for an older audience. I also doubled the almond extract and were very tasty.
