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>
