My 12 Days of Cookies - Day 10

Every year the Food Network features 12 Days of Cookies. If you sign up here you can receive a new cookie recipe in your inbox each day.

Some of them look pretty good and some of them are not my style. This year I decided to do my own version of 12 Days of Cookies. Feel feel to join me in this challenge and make your own 12 cookie recipes (one each day).

Chocolate Cherry Bon Bon Cookies
adapted from and Wilton

1 1/2 cups all-purpose flour
1/2 cup unsweetened cocoa
1/2 cup soft butter or margarine
1 cup granulated sugar
1 1/2 teaspoon baking powder
1 large egg
1 1/2 teaspoons vanilla extract

1 maraschino cherry for each cookie
6 ounces semi-sweet chocolate chips
6 ounces white chocolate

  1. Combine flour and cocoa; set aside.
  2. With electric mixer, beat butter, sugar and baking powder until blended. Add egg, vanilla and cherry flavoring; beat until well combined. Gradually beat in flour mixture. Shape dough into 1-inch balls; place 1/2 -inch apart on ungreased baking sheet. Press down center of each ball with thumb to create a small hollow; fill each center with a cherry.
  3. Heat oven to 350°F.
  4. Bake 10 to 12 minutes or until done. Remove to wire racks and cool.
  5. In small pan over low heat, melt chocolate chips. In another bowl melt white chocolate. Drizzle white chocolate and chocolate chips over cookies. Allow to dry.
