First: I replace the Corn Flakes with Frosted Flakes, it makes them look like snow fell on the--plus they are extra tasty. Second: I would say to optionally dry the cherries. I actually DO NOT dry the cherries, and add two - three table spoons of the cherry Juice it makes the batter a little sticky but the frosted flakes stick better to the balls. The batter becomes pinkish when you add the cherry juice, I think it makes them a little more festive. Well these are my suggestions. Happy Holidays.. :)

This was one of my favorite cookies from my childhood. The only surviving recipe I had, until today, appeared in a I think the 9th Grand National Cookbook 1957 Bake-off. The section was "Specially for the Kids" and the amounts per ingredient were very small amounts, as these were supposed to be baked by children. They contained chopped nuts and cherries, with a piece of cherry atop each cookie. No dates in these. They were delicious! I will be happy to be making these again. Thank you!

This recipe has been one of my favorites for many, many years. The cookies are so special that I make them any time I am asked to take cookies to any meeting or tea. I have to double the recipe because they disappear quickly. Nobody seems able to eat just one.
