Directions:
Cream softened butter and cream cheese together. Add sugar, egg and almond extract and mix well. Add flour and salt. Stir in cherries, pecans and chocolate chips.

This recipe is probably 80 to 100 years old. I though it was lost to history, but Aunt Mary heard me talking about the cookies one day and said she had the recipe. I am so glad. Denise
