Whisk together flour, baking soda, baking powder, salt and nutmeg in a medium-size
In a large bowl, beat eggs, adding sugar gradually, at medium speed until smooth
and fluffy, 2-3 minutes. At low speed or by hand, stir in flour mixture followed
by cherries and chocolate. Drop spoonsful of batter into long lines on prepared
baking sheet and, with well floured hands, shape the irregular lines into rectangular
logs about 1/2 inch high.
Bake at 350 degrees F for 20 minutes, until logs are a light gold color and are
fully set (they will spring back slightly when touched with a finger).
Slice logs into 1/3-1/2 inch thick slices (1-1.5 cm) and lay flat on their sides
on baking sheet.
Lower oven temperature to 300 degrees F. Bake sliced cookies for 15 minutes,

on how thickly they were sliced, turn again and bake for 10 more minutes.
