 Cherry Cordial Cookies
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
