Cherry Chocolate Chip Jubilee Jumbles – The Great Food Blogger Cookie Swap

Editor’s note: A little problem with Ziplist caused me to lose half of this post yesterday – ack! So, a summary of the deleted content:

1) This is the cookie I baked to participate in The Great Food Blogger Cookie Swap (hosted by Lindsay at Love & Olive Oil and Julie @ The Little Kitchen

2) This is based on my grandma’s Jubilee Jumbles recipe – I tracked down the original source: this 1957 Betty Crocker Cooky booklet

3) My uncles ate 9 dozen of these cookies during a cross country trip (but they finished them in the first 4 hours of the drive.)

4) My tweaks included swapping coconut oil for shortening, adding some orange zest to the icing and dried cherries on top of each cookie
