BEST Christmas Cookie in the World EVER!!

I've had my share of cookies in my lifetime.
And Ding DING DING!!!
I think we have a WINNER!!!
These may possibly be the BEST cookie I have ever had!!

The picture says it all...
Rich, Decadent, Soft chocolate cookie.
Topped with a cherry and smooth-as-silk frosting.
Whats not to love??

Chocolate Covered Cherry Cookies

  • 1 1/2 cups all-purpose flour
  • 1/2  cup unsweetened cocoa powder
  • 1/4  teaspoon salt
  • 1/4  teaspoon baking soda
  • 1/4  teaspoon baking powder
  • 1/2  cup butter, room temperature
  • 1  cup granulated sugar
  • 1 egg
  • 1 1/2  teaspoons vanilla
  • 1  (10 ounce) jar maraschino cherries, drained, reserve juice  
  • 1  (6-ounce) package semisweet chocolate chips
  • 1/2  cup sweetened condensed milk

  • Directions:

     In a large bowl, combine flour, cocoa powder, salt, baking powder and soda, blending well; set aside.
     1. In a mixing bowl, beat together butter or margarine and sugar on low speed until fluffy. Add egg and vanilla; beat well. Gradually add dry ingredients to the creamed mixture; beat until smooth and well blended.  

    2. With hands, shape dough into 1-inch balls; place on ungreased baking sheet. Press down center of dough with thumb. 

     3. Drain Maraschino cherries well, reserving juice. Place a cherry in the center indention of each cookie.

     4. In small saucepan combine chocolate pieces and sweetened condensed milk; heat over low heat until chocolate is melted. Stir in 1 tablespoon plus 1 teaspoon of the reserved cherry juice. Spoon about 1 teaspoon of the topping over each cherry, spreading to cover cherry. If frosting seems too thick, thin with a little more cherry juice.
     **I was worried that I read my original recipe wrong when it told me to put the frosting on BEFORE baking. I thought it would melt and run all over. But I did as it said and it is amazing! this super-silky chocolate frosting does not melt or run anywhere! it seals in the cherry beautifully!** 

     5. Bake at 350° for 10 minutes, or until done. Remove to wire rack to cool. Makes 3 to 4 dozen cookies.
    Pin It!
