Oh, I love the addition of cherries in these cookies. Will have to try it out for the holidays. Thanks for sharing Jennifer.

could you use dry cherries that you can buy year round or do they need to be candied ones?

I'm sure you could use those also. I like to make cherry white chocolate macadamia nut cookies and have used the dried ones. Hey, maybe I'll post that one too. I had forgotten about that one. lol
