I made these cookies for a Christmas cookie exchange party! They are great! I used a 1 inch scoop/baller. When the cookies were done baking I had perfectly round 2 inch cookies. Warning::: This recipe made exactly 72. If you are counting on 72 cookies there is no extra dough for nibbling on. I needed exactly 72... Phew!!!! These are really really good cookies. My friends all loved them. How could you ever go wrong with eagle brand recipes???? This is a keeper in my book!

Yummy! I used a whole cherry instead of cutting them in half. I also drizzled the frosting on top instead of covering the cookie. That way you could see the cherry.

These were very yummy and easy to make. I made 13 dozen for a cookie exchange. I also used my 1-inch scoop, and since the dough's not sticky, it was really quick & easy. To make the frosting, I found mine turned out better if I made it in the microwave. Heat condensed milk and chips together for 1 minute and stir - chips should be melted. Heat for 3 more minutes, stirring after each minute. Also, I didn't frost them all because they were pretty and tasty without the frosting too.

this is an old favorite recipe that my now grown kids have enjoyed for years. I lost the magazine that I found it in originally and was so excited to find it here. Each year I host a Cookie Exchange party at the holidays and am so excited to find this recipe so I can make them again this year.

I have made these cookies for the last couple of years. They make great gifts and are often requested around the holidays by my family and friends!
