“A PRETTY cookie which will make your cookie tray at Christmas look good! The cherry and nut combination in a buttery base is delicious! A rolled type dough which can be made and baked later. These cookies freeze very well for make ahead plans. This basic cookie dough I have tried many times substituting different ad-ins.”
