"If you like chocolate and cherries, you'll love this smooth, light dessert," assures Deanna Richter from Elmore, Minnesota. Pantry staples such as instant pudding and canned pie filling make it quick to fix and inexpensive at 32¢ a serving.
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
