Cherry Mexican Wedding Cakes

I put a twist on a Christmas favorite for these cookies. They are the perfect bite. Buttery, melt in your mouth goodness and not too sweet. The touch of pink comes from the cherries making them a great choice for your special Valentine. If you like a touch of chocolate with your cookie check out the Cherry Chocolate Chip Cookie on my blog. Enjoy.
