    jVo's Note:

    From Food Network's "All-Star Holiday Cookies" special (2007). These are from Robin Miller. I have to say, I goofed on my first batch. I didn't read the recipe all the way through and didn't melt the chocolate for dipping the cookies as instructed. I actually stirred the chips into the dough and they still tasted do what you will. The dipping process would probably make them prettier. They must be kept air tight so they stay fresh. You may also substitute real sugar cookie dough. You may also use real cherries or candied cherries. I just used cherry-flavored Craisins. Enjoy!

      I've made them several time, they're pretty good. I have made them a couple of times with the cheeries and have tried them with craisins too. I add about a 1/4- 1/2 tsp of almond extract and leave out the white chocolate chips. I melt semi sweet chocolate and drizzle over the cookie when cooled.
