This was always one of my favorite cookies but the recipe make a small amount and cutting the cherries can be messy (your fingers will turn red but its worth it.)  So mom never made them much.  Once I got a cookie scooper "wow" worth there weight in gold no more two teaspoons and what a time saver.  

This is a good Holiday cookie with bright red and black bits on a pink cookie.  I have also made these with the green Maraschino cherries.
