Double Chocolate Cherry Cookies Recipe ClippingThis recipe was clipped from a newspaper, date unknown. Recipe is typed below along with a scanned copy.

Mrs. Pappas found the recipe for these fudgy cookies in a cookbook. They’re a cross between a cookie and a brownie.


1 1/4 cups softened butter
1 3/4 cups sugar
2 eggs
1 tbsp. vanilla
3 1/2 cups flour
3/4 cup cocoa
1/2 tsp. baking powder
1/2 tsp. baking soda
1/4 tsp. salt
2 jars (6 oz. each) maraschino cherries, well drained and halved
1 6-oz. package chocolate chips
1 can (14 oz.) sweetened, condensed milk (not evaporated)

With mixer, beat butter and sugar until fluffy. Add eggs and vanilla and mix well. Combine dry ingredients; stir into butter mixture (dough will be stiff).

Shape into 1-inch balls. Place 1 inch apart on ungreased cookie sheets. Press a cherry half into center of each ball. Bake at 350 degrees for eight to 10 minutes; cool.

Meanwhile, melt chocolate chips with condensed milk over medium heat. Continue cooking for about three minutes, or until thickened. Frost each cookie with chocolate mixture, covering cherry. Cookies may be frozen. Or, store loosely covered at room temperature. Makes five dozen.
