These are tradition in my family at Christmas time. They are a light merangue type cookie, but with a chewy, toothsome filling.
In the past my grandma would bake them, and my grandpa would help her by cutting all the cherries by hand.
I can still remember him, sitting at the take, cutting the cherries into the tiniest little bits.
Today, my grandparents are no longer with us, but my mother and aunt have kept the recipe alive.
I can not wait to have kids, and make these for them.
