Add flour and mix well. Stir in oats & dried cherries.

Drop by rounded teaspoons approx 2 inches apart on un-greased cookie sheets.

Bake @ 350 F for 12-13 minutes until edges are lightly browned.
* Cookies will not look done in the centers-this is OK, just make sure the edges are browned.

Cool on cookie sheet for at least 1 minute before transferring to wire racks.
