    Chocolate Covered Cherry Cookies

    Ingredients

    1/2 cup butter
    1 cup sugar
    1 egg
    1-1/2 teaspoons vanilla extract
    1-1/2 cups Unbleached All-Purpose Flour
    1/2 cup baking cocoa
    1/4 teaspoon salt
    1/4 teaspoon baking powder
    1/4 teaspoon baking soda
    48 maraschino cherries, blotted dry


    FROSTING:

    1 cup (6 ounces) semisweet chocolate chips
    1/2 cup sweetened condensed milk
    1 to 3 teaspoons maraschino cherry juice


    Directions:

    1. In a bowl, cream together butter and sugar until fluffy; beat in egg and vanilla. Combine the dry ingredients; gradually add to creamed mixture (batter will be very firm). Shape into 48 balls, about 1 in. round, and place on ungreased baking sheets. Push one cherry halfway into each ball.
    2. For frosting, melt chocolate chips in milk in a small saucepan over low heat, stirring constantly. Remove from the heat; add cherry juice and stir until smooth. Spoon 1 teaspoon of frosting over each cherry (the frosting will spread over cookie during baking).
    3. Bake at 350° for 10-12 minutes. Cool on wire racks. Yield: 4 dozen.

        I know, right? I had them when I went to a Beth Moore Bible Study, one of the girls brought them. Soooo good! I had to get the recipe and make them too!

          These sound great; I have to try them. Only thing better than chocolate and cherries: chocolate and strawberries.

            Well these sound addicting!

            I bet they would be really good if you soaked the cherries in some cherry liquor

              I got this recipe several years ago from a friend of mine. I put the balls of dough into my mini muffin pans and used my wooden tamper to make a hole for the cherry and covered with the frosting. It worked great doing it that way.

              The frosting is very much like fudge.
