I would like to dedicate this recipe to my special ladies group of "SCARLET FLOOZIES"
we belong to the OFFICIAL RED HAT SOCIETY CLUB.
This is my original recipe and a combination of a cookie and a bread recipe,that I have in my recipe box..
Then I added my little touches and came up with this sweet little red (hat)cherry cookie, on my second baking attempt.
I believe it is perfected....and now a sweet little bit of heaven! My ladies enjoyed it!
They even asked for the recipe!
