Chocolate-Cherry Cookies

Directions

  1. In a small mixing bowl combine the flour and cocoa powder; set aside. In a large mixing bowl beat butter with an electric mixer on medium to high speed for 30 seconds. Add the sugar, baking soda, baking powder, and salt; beat until combined. Beat in the egg and vanilla. Gradually beat in flour mixture.
  2. Shape dough into 1-inch balls. Place about 2 inches apart on an ungreased cookie sheet. Press down center of each ball with your thumb. Drain maraschino cherries, reserving juice. Place a cherry in the center of each cookie.
  3. For frosting, in a small saucepan combine the chocolate pieces and sweetened condensed milk; heat until chocolate is melted. Stir in 4 teaspoons reserved cherry juice.
  4. Spoon about 1 teaspoon frosting over each cherry, spreading to cover cherry. (If necessary, thin frosting with additional cherry juice.) Bake in a 350 degrees F oven about 10 minutes or until edges are firm. Cool on cookie sheet for 1 minute. Transfer to wire racks; cool. Makes 48 cookies.

From the Test Kitchen

Test Kitchen Tips:

If cherries are large, halve them before using. Use any remaining sweetened condensed milk to flavor hot beverages.

Place in layers separated by waxed paper in an airtight container; cover. Store at room temperature for up to 3 days or freeze for up to 3 months.
