Updated September 17, 2020

Ingredients

  • 1 roll (16.5 oz) refrigerated Pillsbury™ Chocolate Chip Cookie Dough
  • 3 tablespoons all-purpose flour
  • 8 oz chocolate-flavored candy coating, chopped
  • 1 aerosol can (6.4 oz) white decorating icing
  • 2 jars (10 oz each) maraschino cherries with stems, drained on paper towels

Steps

  • 1
    Heat oven to 350°F. In large bowl, break up cookie dough. Stir or knead in flour until well blended. (DO NOT EAT RAW COOKIE DOUGH AFTER COMBINING WITH FLOUR.) Work with half of dough at a time; refrigerate remaining dough until needed.
  • 2
    Shape dough into 16 (1-inch) balls; place 2 inches apart on ungreased cookie sheets. Repeat with remaining dough.
  • 3
    Bake 8 to 12 minutes or until light golden brown. Cool 1 minute; remove from cookie sheets. Cool completely, about 15 minutes.
  • 4
    Meanwhile, in small microwavable bowl, microwave candy coating on High 30 seconds. Stir; microwave in 15-second increments until melted and smooth. Set aside.
  • 5
    With can of decorating icing fitted with star tip, pipe 1-inch star of icing (about 1 teaspoon) on center of each cookie. Dip cherries into melted chocolate; place on white icing on cookies. Let stand until icing is set and chocolate is firm, about 20 minutes. Store between sheets of waxed paper in tightly covered container.

  • Maraschino cherries without stems can be used in place of the cherries with stems.
