Covered in chopped nuts and drizzled with chocolate, these cookies are delicious and pretty, too. Everybody looks forward to munching on them during the holidays.

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
Since we live in hazelnut country, I love making these special cookies for festive occasions. I usually bake two or three batches for parties and homemade gifts. They're yummy tasting and cute as can be!
