This cookie is probably a 5 star cookie if the recipe is followed. I took the advice of some of the reviewers and things didn't turn out so well! First-a second egg will make these cookies more cake like. I made a double batch using 4 eggs and did not like the texture of the cookie at all! Second-definately put the cherry into the cookie before baking! I tried both ways, before and after. You will get a better looking cookie if you put it in before baking. I put 1/2 cherry into the center of each cookie-no thumbprint. The whole cherry was overwelming to the cookie. Third-I iced my cookies after baking. The icing never dried- that must be the reason for baking the icing with the cookie! I made a double batch of cookies and a single batch of icing and still had way too much icing. I used a metal spoon and slowly drizzled the icing over the cookies. On my first batch of icing, I used evaporated milk-big mistake! The cookies did turn out beautiful and tasty. I'm hoping the icing will dry with time. They have been done for 1/2 hr. I will use the leftover icing as a topping for ice cream!
