Black Forest Cookies

READY IN: 2hrs 40mins
Recipe by kitchenslave03

From Everyday Food. I haven't tried these yet, but am planning adding to my Holiday cookie baskets. Update: Thanks to Gayla's kind review I had to make these NOW. Soooo glad I did, some of the best cookies I've ever made. Almost like a chocolate covered cherry cookie. Maybe I just make big cookies, but I only ended up with about 24, and 11 1/2 minutes was just the right bake time for my oven.

These were a big hit here. Really decadent, perfect for any chocolate lover. Thanks for sharing the recipe, I'm sure I'll be making these again.

Directions

  1. Preheat oven to 350. Line three baking sheets with parchment. In a medium bowl, whisk together flour, cocoa, baking powder, and salt; set aside.
  2. Place chopped chocolate and butter in a large heatproof bowl set over a pan of simmering water; stir until melted and smooth. Remove from heat; whisk in sugars, then eggs til smooth.
  3. Whisk in dry ingredients just until combined (do not overmix). Fold in chocolate chunks and cherries; press plastic wrap onto surface of dough and refrigerate 30 to 45 minutes.
  4. Drop mounds of dough (equal to 2 level tablespoons), about 2 inches apart, onto prepared sheets. Bake just until edges are firm (but not darkening) 11 to 13 minutes. Cool on baking sheets 1 to 2 minutes; transfer to a wire rack to cool completely.
