Home made glacé cherries, I’ve never known anyone to do that cookie.  The cake is so full of fruit so has to be very tasty.

DD doesn’t enjoy glacé cherries so when I saw the recipe to make your own I thought I would try it. You basically just cook pipped cherries in a syrup for ages. They are very nice.
