    Excellent! I left out the pecans and added an extra 1/4 cup of flour. My dough was a little crumbily so next time, I might add a little milk but otherwise they were wonderful. Tasted just like shortbread except with more cherries. Even my cherry hating son, will ask for more of these!

    I made a similar recipe in the past, but your recipe had some modifications that I liked. I prepared the dough as you directed, but used only powdered sugar plus 2 T milk (not half granulated sugar). It's a little thing, but my old recipe did not include the direction to add 1 T flour to the cherries -- this made a big difference, the cherries were not a sticky mess to work with! I've tossed my old clipping and will make this from now on (just modifying the sugar). I made one roll last week and put the other in the freezer for a few weeks from now. I know from past experience, this dough freezes very well. Be sure not to overcook these cookies.

    I tried these for Christmas--they were easy to make and a big hit with the adults(not so much the kids). They are a drier, not so sweet cookie and make a beautiful presentation. I had a little trouble telling when they were done but the baking time was pretty much right on. These were very tasty!!! I will definitely make again!
