Rich and fudgy, these cookies make many appearances in care packages I send out. I combined several recipes and added maraschino cherries to come up with this winning recipe.

"These cookies are amazing! They are so soft, fudgy, and chocolately! And they stay moist after storing for much longer than most cookies. I like to make these for Christmas cookie exchanges, and people always like them."

"Wonderful and fudgy! The only thing I did differently was use less chocolate chips (all I had only had was about 1 3/4 c. and we wouldn't have wanted more than that). They were a little too sticky for rolling into balls so I just got out my dough scoop and scooped them onto the cookie sheets...worked great."

"I made 5 kinds of cookies this year and these were the all-around favorites! I used dried cherries that I re-constituted instead of maraschino, and left in some cherry juice. It added a wonderful gentle cherry flavor."

"This was a wonder treat. Easy to make. Easier to eat. I made my annual Christmas cookies and included this recipe. My other cookies looked fancy, so I frosted them to "keep up appearances". The next time, I will roll them in sugar for an easier "finished" look."
