For Cookie Dough:
Cream butter, sugar, egg, and vanilla. Add remaining ingredients, except cherries. Blend. Dough will be stiff. Shape dough into 48 (1-inch) balls. Place balls 2 inches apart on ungreased cookie sheet (or spray with nonstick spray). Push 1/2 (or whole) cherry into each ball. When all cookies are molded, prepare Chocolate Frosting and use immediately.
For Chocolate Frosting:
Melt chocolate with milk, stirring constantly. Remove from heat. Add remaining ingredients. Stir until smooth. Spread 1/2 teaspoon Frosting over each cherry. Bake at 350° for 8–10 minutes.
This is a very pretty cookie whose frosting is thick, so actually stays where you spread it. I like to leave a bit of the cherry showing to tempt with the ruby treasure inside.
"I must say this is the best recipe software I have ever owned."
"Your DVO cookbook software saves me time and money!"
"I saw lots of recipe software for PC computers but I was having a hard time finding really good mac recipe software. I'm so glad I discovered Cook'n! It's so nice to have all my recipes in a computer recipe organizer. Cook'n has saved me so much time with meal planning and the recipe nutrition calculator is amazing!!!
My favorite is the Cook'n Recipe App.
