This recipe is super I would rate it at at 10 if I could. I was looking for an easy cookie to make for a Christmas exchange and the cherries made it look like a Christmas cookie. I love chocolate and cherries so I tried this recipe and loved it. I had many compliments from those who sampled them. I did find chopping the cherries to be time consuming but it was well worth the effort. January 31, 2013
