Buried Cherry Cookies

Cooking Recipes Catalogue

Each of these chocolate cookies are filled with a buried treasure of cherry, hidden by a spoonful of chocolate frosting.

INGREDIENTS (for 4 servings):


  • Prepare Chocolate Frosting: Place 2/3 cup sweetened condensed milk (not evaporated milk) and 1/2 cup Hershey's Semi-Sweet Chocolate Chips in small microwave-safe bowl; stir. Microwave at HIGH (100%) 1 minute or until chips are melted and mixture is smooth when stirred. Cool completely.
  • Heat oven to 350 F.
  • Beat butter, sugar, egg and vanilla in large bowl until fluffy. Stir together flour, cocoa, baking powder, baking soda and salt; gradually add to butter mixture, beating until well blended.
  • Shape dough into 1-inch balls. Place on ungreased cookie sheet about 2 inches apart. Press thumb in center of each ball to make indentation; place one cherry in each thumbprint.
  • Bake 8 to 10 minutes or until edges are set. Remove from cookie sheet to wire rack. Cool completely. Spoon scant teaspoonful frosting over each cherry, spreading to cover cherry.
