dried sour cherries
I wondered how these would turn out with only 1/2 cup flour. They tasted pretty good, however I thought it was not worth the effort to make these, I only got 20 cookies. The dough had to be chilled two times and was not that easy to work with. My son really loved them though, but he will have to make his own :-)
I made these for a family function. Did not turn out at all like the picture shown, and I followed the instruction that were not that difficult. I am a savvy baker, and the mix of ingredients were intriguing. They came out into small hard balls and did not spread at all. Definitely would not make again.
