The afternoon I baked these I was thinking they earned a four, but after sitting a few days (like true chocolate covered cherries) they get a solid five. In future attempts I might try adding an extra egg to the dough as coming out it was kind of dry, but then I'd worry they might fall apart after a couple days because as-written after sitting the cherry kind of settles into and makes the cookie moist. It'll probably be decided by the timeframe I'll be serving: these are for the holidays so I appreciate the heartiness. I did pipe the icing on before baking as written with no problems. Piped, not spooned, which in hindsight created more work and didn't really look any better IMO. The icing isn't strongly cherry flavored, but it tastes rich and fudgy which I think pairs better with the whole cherry in the cookie so I won't make any changes there either. A definite repeat recipe, thanks so much for sharing.
