    I'm not sure if I put in a little too much flour (I didn't sift) or if it was because I was using medium eggs. But the dough was a bit dry. I ended up adding another egg & they turned out perfect. These are one of my favorite cookies, both to eat & to make.

    These are the best! I had lost this recipe and was so happy to find it here again. The cookies are soft and delicious and the icing was perfect do add about 1 teaspoon more cherry juice.! I baked mine for 8 minutes as ovens vary. Fabulous reviews from my family and friends. Happy New Year!

    Made these last Christmas. We brought them to a company Christmas party and they were everyone's favorite cookie. My favorite as well. Best cookies ever. Cheers.

    These were pretty tasty. I thought they tasted better the next day. The frosting went a little hard after cooking. But we ate all of them!
