I got this recipe from last year's <i>Cooking Light</i> cookbook (Annual Recipes 2006). If you like chocolate and cherries, these are for you. (Taste like a Black Forest Cake to me).<br><br>
FYI, I buy dried sour cherries from Aldi. They have a Fit & Active product line that includes several dried fruits. The cherries are $3.49 for an 8 oz. bag and are wonderful.<br><br><b>Chewy Chocolate Cherry Cookies<br></b>1 c. all-purpose flour<br>
1/3 c. unsweetened cocoa<br>
1/2 tsp. baking powder<br>
1/4 tsp. baking soda<br>
1/4 tsp. salt<br>
1 c. sugar<br>
1/3 c. butter, softened<br>
1 tsp. vanilla extract<br>
1 large egg<br>
2/3 c. dried tart cherries<br>
3 tbs. semisweet chocolate chips<br><br>
1. Preheat oven to 350.<br><br>
2. Lightly spoon flour into a dry measuring cup; level with a knife. Combine flour, cocoa, baking powder, baking soda and salt, stirring with a whisk. Place sugar and butter in a large bowl; beat with a mixer on high speed until well blended. Add vanilla and egg; beat well. With mixer on low speed, gradually add flour mixture. Beat just until combined. Fold in cherries and chocolate chips.<br><br>
3. Drop dough by tablespoonfuls 2 inches apart onto baking sheets coated with cooking spray (or lined with parchment paper). Bake at 350 for 12 minutes or just until set. Remove from oven; cool on pans 5 minutes. Remove from pans and cool completely on a wire rack.<br><br>

I just made these last night. Holy CRAP are they good!!!! I found the cherries in the dried fruit section of the supermarket (where the prunes and raisins are)--Sunsweet, Mariani and one other brand, I think it's the one who makes Craisins, make a dried cherry. They're not super cheap but they are worth it, and probably on sale now for baking season!!!!<br><br>
It's like a black forest brownie, nice and chewy and very rich. You don't need to eat many.

I realized after I posted that I should have posted in the recipes subforum. I was wondering if some kind soul would come along and move it.<img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.kickrunners.com/forum/images/smilies/smile.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="Smile">

oh my word, these sound delicious! My husband LOVES the combo of chocolate and cherries, so if I make these AND diablita's challah bread for him . . . well, I would have scored some major points!
