    Barenaked Chef's Note:

    I made these and my husband pronounced them the best cookie I've ever made. He also gave me the idea of sticking a kiss in them right after taking them out of the oven and calling it a Chocolate covered cherry cookie.

      These were delicious! They are the most beautiful shade of pink and red from the cherries. I used about a teaspoon of almond extract instead of the vanilla. I have another roll of them in the freezer and I'm excited to bake the next batch. My original intention was to make them as gifts, but they may not make it into the packages because they are so good they seem to be disappearing.
