Cherry Cordial Cookies

Noelle Myers


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. It has turned out to be a VERY popular cookie with family and friends.

You need these soft sugar cookies on your holiday cookie tray. They have little bits of dried cherries, are topped with a dollop of chocolaty cherry preserves and drizzled with white chocolate. Oh my... they're good. Chewy, chocolaty, sweet, and fantastic. Test Kitchen Avatar The Test Kitchen

How to Make Cherry Cordial Cookies


  1. Pre-heat oven to 350° F.
  2. Cream together butter and sugar.
  3. Blend in egg and vanilla.
  4. Sift together flour, baking powder, and salt.
  5. Add to butter mixture along with dried cherries, just until blended.
  6. Scoop rounded teaspoonsful of dough onto a parchment-lined baking sheet.
  7. Bake at 350° F. for 10-12 minutes or until lightly golden.
  8. While cookies are baking, melt cherry preserves. In a microwave-safe bowl, heat cherry preserves on high for one minute in the microwave.

  12. Spoon chocolate cherry mixture into the wells on top of each cookie.
  13. Melt white chocolate chips in a double boiler or in a stainless steel bowl set over boiling water.
  14. Drizzle white chocolate over filled cookies. Allow to cool completely.
