Prize-Winning Recipe 2010! Delight in a double chocolate cookie with the double goodness of chocolate and cherries together.
cups whole maraschino cherries, well drained
pouch (1 lb 1.5 oz) Betty Crocker™ double chocolate chunk cookie mix
tablespoons vegetable oil
cup chopped macadamia nuts
teaspoon powdered sugar
Heat oven to 375°F. Cut 15 of the maraschino cherries in half; set aside for topping cookies. Chop remaining maraschino cherries.
In large bowl, stir cookie mix, oil, water and egg until soft dough forms. Stir in chopped cherries and nuts. Drop dough by rounded teaspoonfuls 2 inches apart on ungreased cookie sheet. Press one cherry half lightly into center of each cookie.
Bake 7 to 9 minutes or until set. Cool 2 minutes; remove from cookie sheet to wire rack. Cool completely, about 15 minutes. Before serving, sprinkle with powdered sugar. Store loosely covered at room temperature.
Place cookies in a container, then place the lid or a piece of foil over the top so that a small opening is left so air can still get into the container.
