These are yummy!! I made this for PAC 2006. I skipped the jar because I wanted to eat them right away! My dried cherries were pretty big, so I cut them up with scissors. The dough is really thick, but the cookies come out nice and moist. The only thing I think I will do different next time is increase the amount of walnuts and decrease the amount of white chocolate chips. They were a little too sweet for my taste. Orange or lemon zest would be a nice addition too. Thanks for sharing! :)

My daughter made these and they were devoured. The only thing I'd change is to replace the cherries with plain chocolate chips, I think, just to make it more polka dottie! The dried cherries I bought in the UK were rather large and not exactly spherical.
