This cookie is a new family favorite and I will definitely make them again. I omitted the cherries because I had already made some cherry cookies and didn't miss them at all. I also made batches with Andies mints and caramel kisses filling. The cinnamon sugar seemed a strange combination with the chocolate, but the slight cinnamon aftertaste of the cookie is my favorite part.
These cookies were beautiful to look at, but not as flavorful as I would've liked them to be.
These cookies may take a while to make, but they are well worth the effort! I made 12 dozen for a cookie exchange at Christmas, and people are still talking about how awesome they are! Thanks so much, Sallie. I'll be making this one again.
These cookies came out great and were fun to make with the kids. We did get a little creative with the toppings and strayed from the recipe. We cut Andes Candies in half and put that on top with a small piece of a cherry. (A whole cherry would've been too large.) The cookie itself was soft and chocolaty. They had fun rolling them and making the thumbprint. Then when they were baked they loved putting on the toppings!
I can't say enough good things about this recipe. I baked these for my Christmas Cookie Gifts and everyone that tried them was absolutely blown away! I had several co-workers of mine and some of my husbands say they were the best cookies they have ever had! I followed the receipe for some, dusted others with cinnamon and added mini-chocolate chips to yet others. Each batch was better than the last. Thanks for starting a Christmas tradition!
My family has really enjoyed this cookie. They are yummy, easy, and fun to make, but they do take some time after they come out of the oven to 'fill' so plan accordingly. I used a toothpick to swirl the white chocolate after it had melted a bit and because of the short cooking time, found that I had to completly finish each cookie sheet before I put the next in to bake. Be sure and add the half cherry on top, it adds lots of flavor to the cookie. Thanks for the recipe. It will be on my Christmas bake list every year from now on.
These cookies were delicious was looking for something different. I used the swirled chocolate chips (caramel) and added pecans. Really good!
I loved this recipe!. I did modify it a bit the second time around. I didn't use the cherries & I substituted regular chocolate instead of white. This batch came out very rich & chocolatey!
