  1. Good Morning Coralie,
    I just love that little cherub standing all innocent in fron of the lady. How sweet is that.

  2. No one in this house will eat cherries except for me. So a whole batch of these all to myself? Probably not the best idea. ;) But I'm sure I can find someone to help eat them!
    Adorable valentine, too! :)

  3. what a lovely pairing of the ethereal looking valentine and the dreamy sounding cherry winks! Swoon!

  4. I love the delicate beauty of this card. Would you believe I've never had Cherry Winks?! I need to try them! Have a nice weekend! Twyla

  5. what a cute recipe name.

    The washed colors of your valentine is so tender..
    just what the holiday is intended to espouse :)

  15. Cherry Winks is a very engaging name for a cookie.
    Did you see that I compiled on my blog from blogger comments there our favorite 21 books that we read in 2009?
    Your own book was recommended and is on the list:
    A Tree Grows in Trout Creek.
    I think that is an honor because my blog readers have great and eclectic taste in books :)

  16. The soft pink and gray is so beautiful!

  22. I first made these for my grandmother who was spending her last days in a nursing home excluding the raisins & walnuts and using cornflakes instead...Before Christmas each year, Someone is always asking~ do you have the recipe for Mama's Cherry Winks since she loved to make them, they became her trademark being a wonderful cookie baker...and how I happened onto your site. My cookbook is almost 46 yrs old now and the recipe seems to disappear from time to time. Thank you what a wonderful way to beautiful way to share the recipe...
