I love to make these pretty little gems at Christmas and Valentines Day!


I especially love the new Hershey Kisses with the cherry filling with these cookies!

Dawn is right! Move over chocolate covered cherries, this is one good cookie. When you combine all the ingredients, the flavors work so well together. I especially like the addition of pecans ... it gives each bite a little crunch. The Test Kitchen
