My dad is a huge cookie fan, and he wanted me to create a cookie that was reminiscent of one of his favorite holiday treats - Cherry Cordials. This is what I came up with, and it has turned out to be a VERY popular cookie with family and friends.

Ingredients

1/2 c
butter, room temperature
1 c
sugar
1 1/2 tsp
pure vanilla extract
2 c
all purpose flour
2 tsp
baking powder
1/2 tsp
salt
3/4 c
chopped dried cherries
1 c
cherry preserves
1 c
semi sweet chocolate chips
1/2 c

Directions Step-By-Step

1
Pre-heat oven to 350° F.
2
Cream together butter and sugar. Blend in egg and vanilla.
3
Sift together flour, baking powder and salt. Add to butter mixture along with dried cherries, just until blended.
4
Scoop rounded teaspoonsfull of dough onto a parchment lined baking sheet. Bake at 350° F. for 10-12 minutes, or until lightly golden.
5
While cookies are baking, melt cherry preserves. In a microwave safe bowl, heat cherry preserves on high for one minute in the microwave. Using an immersion blender, blend the preserves to break up the cherries, or use a fork to mash them.
6
Stir semi sweet chocolate chips into the hot cherry preserves. Continue to stir until chocolate chips are melted and mixture is smooth.
7
Remove cookies from oven. Using the back of a spoon, immediately form a shallow well on the top of each cookie. Transfer cookies to a rack to cool.
8
Spoon chocolate cherry mixture into the wells on top of each cookie.
9
Melt white chocolate chips in a double boiler, or in a stainless steel bowl set over boiling water. Drizzle white chocolate over filled cookies. Allow to cool completely.
