Well. They taste really good. But they spread out while baking, and pretty much looked like a pan of brownies. They stuck to the pan and to each other so they're mostly just chunks I had to cut into the shape of cookies.... And by that I mean squares. And by squares I mean not any identifiable shape. I would make again, but would add more flour next time. But they do taste great.

This recipe is the same as Recipezaar #201338, and is from the Cuisine at Home HoIiday Cookies Magazine. The cookies pictured in the magazine are about 3 inches in diameter, and the tops have wide chocolate streaks running through the powdered sugar coating. They're not a crisp cookie. The texture is soft, slightly chewy or fudgy, but not cakey. I used mini chips because I didn't want the larger chocolate chips to dominate the texture of the cookie, and substituted finely chopped crystallized ginger for the cherries to add a bit of spice to the cookies. These freeze beautifully. They only stay fresh for a day or two at room temperature. My yield was only 17 cookies that were approximately 2 1/2 to 3" in diameter.

Made without the cherries altogether, and with probably twice as many chocolate chips (perhaps too many? hard to keep them in the dough). Amazing amazing amazing! Such a hit! I love that they don't take much butter. Doubling the recipe next time!! Yum!!
