About this recipe: Lovely chewy oatmeal cookies with the addition of cocktail cherries and walnuts. If you don't have cocktail cherries, you could use glace cherries and then use a tablespoon of water, milk or even rum for the cherry juice.

Love the recipe, didn't use the nuts though but still nicd and really easy to make - 04 Jul 2011
Based on what others had said about the weak cherry flavor I exchanged 1/2 of the butter for strawberry applesauce(which also helped cut the fat) and use 1 & 1/2 tablespoons of the cherry juice. The cherry flavor was more pronounced. Cookies turned out great - will make again. - 13 Mar 2002 (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
Try using almond extract instead of vanilla for more "cherry" flavor. Good texture cookie. I added cherry icing. - 31 Dec 2007 (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
