Christmas Chocolate Chip Cherry Cookies
I love all the different flavors that are created at Christmas Time. This Chocolate Chip Cherry Cookie Recipe has a lot of them. This cookie is just delicious. It is not all that hard to make and is very colorful. This recipe makes 2 to 3 dozen cookies depending on how large you make them. Your Family and guests will love them. Enjoy.
