    I think this is a brilliant idea! 😀  -  14 Dec 2015


    These cookies are SO good. I like that they have so much fruit and grains in them. The cherries plump up a bit and are tart yet sweet. A great 'healthy' taste combination! I just mix everything together in my stand mixer and use a cookie scoop - easy. Make sure you grease the cookie sheet if not using parchment. They can get a little dry the next day, but they're usually gone by then.  -  16 Mar 2004  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)


    These are so good. I used dried cranberries instead of dried cherries.  -  03 Sep 2008  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
