Inside Out Chocolate Covered Cherry Cookies
They taste like an inside out chocolate covered cherry and are really easy to make.
I looked for recipes on the internet, but none of them were exactly what I was looking for so I kinda Frankenstein'ed a recipe together from all the things I read online.
What I was going for was a nice crispy cherry shortbread outside that was soft and chewy on the inside with the kiss in the middle.
The result was almost exactly what I was going for except the outside is a bit less crispy than I'd like, but it is still amazing.
