  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F (180 degrees C).
  2. Beat the butter and sugar together in a bowl. Add egg and vanilla and beat well. Add the flour, cocoa powder, salt, baking soda, and baking powder and stir until smooth. Roll the mixture into 1-inch balls about the size of a walnut (larger if desired). Place on ungreased cookie sheet. Press center of each ball with thumb.
  3. Drain cherries and reserve juice. Place a cherry in indentation of each cookie ball.
  4. In a saucepan, heat condensed milk and chocolate chips until chips are melted. Stir in 4 teaspoons of cherry juice. Spoon about 1 teaspoon of mixture over each cherry and spread to cover cherry. (More cherry juice may be added to keep frosting of spreading consistency.)
  5. Bake in preheated oven for 10 minutes.

Over the years I had lost this recipe and was so happy to find it here! One thing I do that solves the problem of too much frosting is I make the hole for the cherry larger so it takes more fro...

I just recently made these and they were fantastic! I assumed that the directions to add the frosting to the cookie before baking was incorrect but it's not and the cookie and frosting turn out ...

These are fabulous! Tried frosting the cookies before & after baking. The cookies are much better if you wait to drizzle them post baking. And FYI: the icing makes triple the amount that you a...

I've been making this cookie for years! They get stale REALLY fast, so I freeze them soon after they cool. I put them in a tupperware container with wax paper between the layers. They don't f...

What a decadent delight! I loved these cookies and I will certainly make them again. The cookies were delicious and attractive. I took them to a bake sale and many people asked for the recipe. I...

Lovely cookies, good flavor. I tripled the batch and made 1/3 of these cookies without the cherries in them, and they were a hit even without the fruit. With the fruit they were sensational as w...

These truly are yummy cookies, and like other reviews, the frosting yields so much, that you'll have enough to spoon a teaspoon onto each cookie instead of just drizzling it. Another hint, the ...

Good enough. The frosting did not have enough cherry in it and the cookie alone (once the cherry was gone) was no big deal. I will make again putting some cherry juice in the cookie and a lot ...

These cookies are soooo yummy!!! I added an extra egg like someone else had suggested and they are so chewy! They have a great chocolatey-fudgey taste. My cookies kind of spread out when they...
