These are terrific cookies they disappeared in a flash at my house. The only difficulty I ran in to was keeping my kid out of the cherry chips! I also think these would make good Christmas cookies they look very festive with the cherry chips in them. I know I will be making these many more times in the future. Read More

I used 1c cherry chips and 1c milk chocolate chips and after the first couple of batches I baked them for about 13 minutes rather than 10 (we like our cookies a bit more golden & slightly crispy). A very nice cookie. Thanks for the recipe Lisa! Read More

These are a perfect cookie!!! I didn't have shortening so I used lard in place of. You really need to measure the butter with a measuring cup and I think its why some people have been having trouble with this recipe. The first time I have used cherry chips and we adored the cookies. They are like a sugar cookie with a cherry flavor. Read More

This recipe was a horrible disaster. I followed the directions exactly to the T yet the cookies came out soggy in the center and crispy on the edge. It looks like there was too much fat in the mix or maybe the cookies should be baked at 350 for a longer cooking time I really don't know. What I do know is that I make cookies on a regular basis I know my oven and I have never had any cookie come out this terrible..EVER. Read More

I used a bit less shortening and peppermint extract instead of vanilla extract. Make sure all the butter and shortening is room temperature Read More

This recipe is wonderful. It is a big "hit" with the whole family. I didn't have shortening so I used all margarine and they were still wonderful. Read More
