A vistor emailed us about this recipe:

> I am now 63 years of age. I first had this cookies when I was 12 years old. A friend of mine invited me to her house and her mother was baking them and gave us one. Not until I was 23 years old did I find the recipe. They were called cherry winks at that time. Now they are called cherry cookies. I can't waite until I bake them and gift wrap them for Xmas to hand them out to my family and friends. Thank you so much for the receipe. My family and I will enjoy them for this Xmas and other days for the coming years. They are so wonderful.
