Why I Love This Recipe

On Nook & Pantry blog I saw this cookie and decided to try it this morning. Since I was not going to go out to get dried cranberries or cherries, I used maraschino cherries instead . They tasted really good with them. There are two more cookies I wish to try over the next week or two so stay tuned.
