Recipe by green_sleeves

A melt in your mouth cookie that disappears fast! I always make lots of these and store ( hide! ) in the freezer. They freeze well for over a month tightly sealed. Very pretty on a plate if you use assorted coloured cherried. You could dip half the cookie in melted chocolate for something a bit different if you want to omit the cherries.
