Milk Chocolate and Cherry Cookies

Ingredients
2
cups frozen pitted dark sweet cherries (about 42)
1
cup sugar
1/4
teaspoon baking powder
1/4
teaspoon baking soda
1/4
teaspoon salt
1
egg
1 1/2
teaspoons vanilla
1 1/2
1
cup milk chocolate pieces
1/2
cup sweetened condensed milk
4
teaspoons cherry liqueur or milk

Directions

  1. Thaw cherries; pat dry with paper towels. Set aside. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. In a medium mixing bowl beat butter with an electric mixer on medium to high speed for 30 seconds. Add sugar, baking powder, baking soda, and salt. Beat until combined, scraping sides of bowl occasionally. Beat in egg and vanilla until combined. Beat in cocoa powder and as much of the flour as you can with the mixer. Using a wooden spoon, stir in any remaining flour.
  2. Shape dough into 1-inch balls. Place balls about 2 inches apart on an ungreased cookie sheet. Press your thumb into the center of each ball. Place a cherry in each indentation.
  3. For frosting, in a small saucepan cook and stir chocolate pieces and sweetened condensed milk over low heat until chocolate is melted. Stir in cherry liqueur. Spoon about 1 teaspoon of the frosting over each cherry.
  4. Bake about 10 minutes or until edges are firm. Cool on cookie sheet for 1 minute. Transfer cookies to a wire rack; cool.
