I found this recipe 2 years ago now and really loved it. Only giving 4 stars because i needed to adjust a bit to get the consistency right. My major challenge though was getting enough cherry flavor and getting a drizzle consistency that would harden enough to make for easier storage and presentation.
I took the advice of other reviewers and added the extra egg (this did make them much more chewy!,) but still couldn't get enough cherry flavor at a good consistency.
This third time I made them, I decided to reduce all of the maraschino cherry juice over low heat to thicken it first. Once it was like syrup I let it cool and thicken a bit, then I added half to the cookie dough and half to the chocolate drizzle mix. This really did the trick! The cookies and drizzle had way more cherry flavor and the drizzle hardened much better then ever before.
I will keep doing this in the future. Also, a good note, after trying it both ways, I decided on drizzling before baking it is less shiny, but also isn't so sticky, so its possible to stack them better for storage. Thanks for the great recipe. This is the unanimous favorite cookie every year! :)
