Intrigued by tunisianswife's review, I gave these a try, and what a great recipe--instructions were perfect, cooking time just right, and the dough was very easy to work with. I halved the recipe, ground my oatmeal and added about 1/4 cup of pecans, chopped fine. I had no trouble using a tablespoon of dough, made it into a little circle, made a little "bed" in the middle for the cherry, and lightly formed the dough up & around the cherry. Halving the recipe gave me 16 "balls". After baking, dipped into an icing of powdered sugar thinned with maraschino cherry juice and a little evap milk. Delicious! Not too sweet and a nice buttery texture. I think it will be a versatile recipe--I can see it with an indentation for a dab of chocolate frosting or with chopped cherries mixed into the dough. Thank you, Evy Adams, for sharing.
