Well -------- I actually made this Land O Lakes recipe and made 28 small cookies instead of the 42 the recipe says.  After cooling and drizzling with melted choco chips, I tried one.  I think it's almost tasteless.  I was disappointed and won't use this expensive recipe again.

I've eyed this recipe a few times and it sounded so good. I'm sorry they didn't taste good, Nancy, after all your effort, time and ingredients. Appreciate the feedback.

Hi Verlee -- they didn't taste "bad" or anything like that.  IMHO they just aren't good cookies.  
I was not going to include something like that in any of the cookie assortments I give away so I just stuck them in the freezer.   A few minutes later I was ran into my next door neighbor and was whining to her about the effort and expense.  LOL - she volunteered to take them off my hands.

Nancy - I just went to the Land O Lakes site and read the reviews for this cookie recipe and quite a few of them were not favorable.  Many people mentioned how they would add flavor to it the next time, so you are definitely not the only one (are we ever the "only one"?).  Thank you for the heads up about this rather bland cookie.

Thanks, Cheryl -- thanks a lot!  I've never read the reviews there. 
I've printed a lot of their cookie recipes that I plan on trying soon.

Thanks,  Nancy.  if you say they aren't worth making, I won't bother to try them.  You are the cookie expert, so whatever you say is good enough for me.

I just looked at the recipe and if I did make them I'd definitely add almond extrract. Just reading the ingredients makes me think there wouldn't be much flavor.  I noticed the people who rated the recipe better had altered the recipe.  That should tell you something.  I like to read reviews just to see what other people think.

Thank you, Cheryl.

Hey, Judy --  Now you have me wondering if I should make another batch of this stuff and try the almond extract?  They are such fun LOOKING cookies and kids love those cherries.

Nancy, I might give them another try with the almond.  I'd probably use the vanilla also but I bet the almond would give them a kick.  They do look pretty.
