      One of my family's most requested holiday cookies. Don't mix red and green cherries in the same batch (the colors will bleed and look muddy). Thanks for the post.

      I made these for my xmas cookie exchange this year. The recipe is accurate for ingredients, batch size and cooking time. It is easy to double. I did add a touch of almond extract as I think you can never go wrong with a hint of almond extract. These were easy and delicious! A keeper.

      Really enjoyed these, even tho I don't usually liked candied cherries. I used half red and half green cherries, I feel the cookies are prettier this way.
