I made these cookies waaay back when in Home Economics class at Venice High School in L.A., California. With a shortbread texture blended with walnuts and cherries, these are certainly unforgettable. I usually bake them around Christmas, but they are super any time of year. They are particularly great with a hot cup of coffee, I hope you enjoy these as much as my family does!

Everyone just loves these cookies. You can make them soft by leaving them on the cookie sheet for a minute or two. If you like a crisp and crunchy cookie - immediately remove them from the cookie sheet once they are done baking! Full of berries, oatmeal, chocolate and toffee.
