Cherry Cordial Cookies Recipe

These cookies look difficult to make, but they are not. They are pretty simple, and they pffer the added bonus of a tasty little cherry in the middle.

Cherry Cordial Cookies Notes:

• Though the recipe uses a stand mixer, hand-held electric beaters work well too.
• If you do not have a double boiler you can easily fake it as long as you have two pots of the same size. You fill a pot half way with water. Place it on the stove and allow the water to boil. Then, take your second pot of the same size, and put in the ingredients in that dry-pot. Place the ingredient filled pot on top of the pot with the boiling water (I actually place the first pot on top of the second immediately, but for descriptive purposes, it was less confusing to explain it this way). Your ingredients will now melt quicky… stir to help keep it smooth!

I wanted to show the step by step photos to clarify just how easy it is to mold and decorate these Cherry Cordial Cookies, because the description makes it sound a bit more complicated than it really is.

• Make sure you drain your maraschino cherries well, but do NOT toss the juice.
• Have everything set up to frost: melted chocolate frosting, decorator sugar, chopped almonds, and the cooled cookies.
• The frosting is smooth and liquidy, and will cover well. Once you have dipped your cookies, immediately dip the frosted cookies into the chopped almonds, the decorator sugar, both, or none!
• This is a pretty clean process!
• In the end, you have cookies that look like a lot of work, that really weren’t!
