Cherry Cordial Cookies Recipe

One of my dad’s favorite candies is chocolate-covered cherry cordials. I decided to re-create the flavor in these cookies. They were a hit with my taste testers! For extra ease, you could prepare the dough ahead and freeze up to 3 months. —Noelle Myers, Grand Forks, North Dakota
TOTAL TIME: Prep: 20 min. Bake: 10 min. + standing YIELD:36 servings


  • 1 package (17-1/2 ounces) sugar cookie mix
  • 3/4 cup chopped dried cherries
  • 1/2 cup butter, softened
  • 1 egg
  • 3/4 cup cherry preserves
  • 1-1/2 cups semisweet chocolate chips
  • 2/3 cup white baking chips


  • 1. Place the cookie mix, cherries, butter and egg in a large bowl; beat until well mixed. Shape into 1-in. balls; place 2 in. apart on ungreased baking sheets. Bake at 350° for 10-12 minutes or until edges are browned.
  • 2. Meanwhile, place cherry preserves in a small microwave-safe bowl. Microwave on high for 1 minute. Stir in chocolate chips until melted. If necessary, microwave in 10- to 20-second intervals until chips are melted; stir until blended.
  • 3. Using the back of a tablespoon, make an indentation in the center of each warm cookie. Fill indentations with cherry mixture. Remove to wire racks to cool completely.
  • 4. Microwave white baking chips until melted. Drizzle over cookies. Let stand until set. Yield: about 3-1/2 dozen.
