    Cherry Chocolate Cookies

    1 1/3 cups butter
    3/4 cup brown sugar
    2 large eggs
    1 cup semi-sweet chocolate chips, melted
    1 teaspoon vanilla
    2 cups quick or old-fashioned rolled oats
    1 1/2 cups all-purpose flour
    1/4 teaspoon salt
    1 teaspoon baking powder
    About one jar of maraschino cherries, drained
    3/4 cup semi-sweet chocolate chips, melted

    Preheat the oven to 350 degrees.

    1. Cream the butter and sugar together. Add the eggs and beat until light and fluffy, scraping the sides once (about five minutes). Add the melted chocolate and vanilla.

    2. Add the rolled oats. Add the flour, salt, and baking powder and mix until combined.

    3. Drop spoonfuls of dough on an ungreased baking sheet. Press a cherry deep into the dough for each. Bake for 11 or 12 minutes. Remove immediately to a wire rack to cool. Once cool, drizzle the cookie with melted chocolate.

    Bakerís notes: Chocolate can be melted easily in the microwave. Place the chocolate in a small bowl and microwave in thirty second intervals, stirring after each until smooth.

    For drizzling the chocolate, place the chocolate chips in a heavy duty, zipper-type plastic bag. Once melted, snip a tiny corner from the bag and squeeze the chocolate through the snipped corner to drizzle on the cookies.
