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

I never cared for jam-filled thumbprints, so I decided to fill them with frosting instead. This makes them easy to ship, which you can’t do with the sticky jam filling. I sent these to my daughter while she was serving in Iraq, and they made the long haul in perfect condition. —Wendy Schlueter, Babbitt, Minnesota
