I developed these sophisticated cookies for my son, who loves chocolate and cherries. These shipped well while he was in Afghanistan. These are chocolate, chocolate chip cookies with pecans and dried cherries. Super yummy and not too sweet, better than chocolate covered cherries or Black Forest cake!
