Chocolate and Cherries.... Need I Say More??!!
Recently I was craving a good chocolate fix... so I got out a basic Chocolate cookie recipe and tweaked it a bit. I LOVE to take recipes and play with them!! How about you? Do you find yourself doing that too? ...... I think it makes what I make that much more enjoyable..... If you like fudgy brownies, sweet/tart cherries and a little warm tingle on your tongue ....tries these little cookies.... ;)
1 cup unsalted butter
1 cup of white sugar
3/4 cup brown sugar
1 1/4 cups unsweetened cocoa powder
1 3/4 cups all purpose flour
2 teaspoons baking soda
1/4 teaspoon cayenne pepper ( adds just enough heat to these cookies to be warmingly pleasant)
1 bag chocolate chips
1 to 1 1/2 cup dried cherries ( amount to preference)
Preheat oven to 350'. Grease cookie sheets. Cream butter, sugars until light and fluffy. Add eggs, beating well. Add dry ingredients and mix through. Add the chips and cherries. Drop by rounded spoonfuls. Be careful not to over bake.... you want them to be chewy brownie consistency.. Enjoy!!
