Cherry Chocolate Cookies recipe

Chocolate, orange, cherries, and pecans make for one superhero cookie—great for all ages!


1 cup butter, softened
¾ cup packed brown sugar
2 egg yolks
1 ounces semisweet chocolate, melted, cooled
1 ½ teaspoons minced orange peel
1 teaspoon ground cinnamon
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
¼ teaspoon salt
2 ¼ cups all-purpose flour
2 cups finely chopped pecans
2 egg whites
¾ cup cherry jelly


1) Preheat oven to 350°F. Lightly grease two baking sheets.

2) Beat butter and sugar together in a medium bowl until thick and fluffy. Add egg yolks, beating well. Add chocolate, peel, cinnamon, vanilla, and salt; beat well. Stir in the flour until just combined. Set aside.

3) Place pecans and egg whites in two separate small bowls; lightly beat the egg whites.

4) Shape dough into 1-inch balls; dip each ball into egg whites and roll in pecans to coat. Place balls on prepared baking sheets, two inches apart. Press each cookie down to make an indentation with a thumb. Bake until edges are firm and cookies are golden, about 12 minutes.

5) Allow cookies to cool on a wire rack. Fill the center of the cooled cookies with a spoonful of jelly.
