My creation is special because I have captured the flavors of two classic desserts, Black Forest Cake and Cherries Jubilee in a cookie. The fudgy chocolate cookie is filled with a no-coo cherry mixture. Chopped almonds compliment the amaretto flavor in the filling and the cookie is an eye-catcher and oh-so pretty to serve during the holidays.—Barbara Estabrook, Rhinelander, Wisconsin
