Great recipe! I used fresh-picked pitted sweet cherries which lent a "Black Forest Cake" flavor to the cookies.
Other changes I made to the recipe were:
1)used 1/2 cup white sugar and 1/2 cup brown sugar (instead of 1 cup white), 2) added 2 tbsps of sweetened condensed milk to cookie recipe 3)used milk chocolate chips for the glaze, 3)I placed a couple of chocolate chips on the top of the cookie before baking, 4)pressed the cherries into the cookies (and glazed them) AFTER baking, 5)cooled the cookies completely before glazing, 6)added 1/2 tsp almond flavoring and 2 tbsp fresh-squeezed cherry juice to the glaze. I doubled the cookie recipe but kept the glaze recipe single, which was the perfect amount of glaze. Double cookie recipe yielded 54 incredibly delicious brownie-like cookies. The family loved 'em!
