Easy way to make the chocolate drizzle: place the chocolate chips in a small freezer bag with a tsp of shortening instead of oil. Microwave in 30sec intervals, pulling out the bag and squishing the bag to mix the melting chocolate until chocolate is well melted. Clip a tiny tip from bottom corner of bag and squeeze the bag to easily drizzle chocolate with no cleanup!

I made these last year at Christmas and my daughter requested they become a family tradition. They are really good.

my favorite cookie recipe since I first made it from a Christmas cookie book.. If you over work the dough, it will make the cookies dry. The chocolate must be used right away. If you let it cool, it won't drizzle.

In 2001 I got the cookbook that had this cookie in it, and have made it every year since. Everyone loves it. I do use the cherries without the stems, makes it easier to eat. It is one of my fav. cookies for Christmas.

This was a really easy cookie to make. I made two fillings, one with Cherry Brandy and the other with Almond Extract. They both were delicious. The actual cookie is a bit dry, but that may be my fault, I may have baked it too long. The melted chocolate doesn't drizzle either, I had to add more oil just to get it to drop off the end of the spoon. The overall cookie once eaten is tasty.
