Chopped maraschino cherries in the dough give this classic a festive update.

Ingredients

  • 1 cup maraschino cherries

  • 1-1/4 cups packed brown sugar

  • 3/4 cup butter-flavored solid vegetable shortening

  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract

  • 1 teaspoon almond extract

  • 1 large egg

  • 1-3/4 cups all-purpose flour

  • 1 teaspoon salt

  • 3/4 teaspoon baking soda

  • 1 cup semi-sweet chocolate chips

Directions

  • Pre-heat oven to 375 F. Drain maraschino cherries and chop coarsely. Place on a paper towel to soak up excess liquid. In a large mixing bowl, beat sugar, shortening until creamy. Beat in extracts and egg. In a separate bowl, combine flour, salt and baking soda. Stir into creamed mixture. Stir in chips and cherries. Drop by heaping tablespoonfuls onto ungreased baking sheets. Bake for 8 to 10 minutes. Cool 2 minutes on baking sheets then remove to wire racks to cool completely.

I love these! They are so easy and festive looking! After reading the comments I put a paper towel on top of the cherries to help get the extra moisture out.They turned out perfectly.

This recipe was so easy! The cookies were very hard to "drop," because they were extremely sticky, but I think it was because the chopped cherries weren't drained enough. The cookies themselves were a hit--everyone loved them, and they disappeared before all the others!
