This is a very easy recipe. I rolled them in small balls rather than dropping them. I used red and green cherries combined and it gives it a nice festive colour. This cookie is a bit pale and you may want to dip the top in coloured sugar before baking to add extra colour. It took the full 15 minutes in my oven. Will make again.
YUM these are so good the only change i made was i use half reg. chocolate chips and half white chocolate chips. at first hubby and my oldest daughter were complaining they were not going to like them hubby says he does not like coconut and oldest daughter says she does not like cherries well let me tell you they both loved these so much so that when i woke up this am they were all gone. they were up watching a movie late and ate every crum. thank you for a great recipe i will be making these often and i will be sure to hide some so i can eat more too.
These are like eating a chocolate covered cherry in cookie form! So delicious!! If you are getting flat cookies it might be because you are using maraschino cherries instead of candied cherries (they are much "wetter" so will thin your batter out even if you drain them first). I like using maraschino cherries so I cut them up squeeze the extra juice out in a paper towel then up the flour by 2 Tablespoons and my cookies come out perfectly.:)
Great Recipe. Followed other advice rolled the cookies into balls to keep their shape better. I like chocolate so I didn't reduce them. If you don't enjoy choc. chip cookies them I would reduce by at least 1/4 cup.
Oh yummy! I chose these for my annual cookie exchange. The ingredients are totally holiday appropriate (I used red / green candied cherries for added color)! I must admit... I read Theresa's recipe incorrectly.... I thought the yield was 18 cookies! It was not until I started spooning the dough onto my cookie sheet that I realized this made 3.5 dozen (ikes!)!!! I am really glad I have so many cookies though. These are DEEELICIOUS and rich - their small size is perfect for this very reason.:) These and a cold glass of milk would be a great gift for "Santa" lol! I can't wait to share my "treasures" with my train buddies and co-workers (and my hubby's co-workers too!). NOTE: My cookies baked perfectly in 13.5 - 14 minutes (just be sure to allow to rest BEFORE transferring to wire racks to finish cooling). These will most definitely become part of my yearly holiday rotation and are definitely a GREAT find on here. Thanks SO much for sharing Theresa!:-)
