Short for Chocolate Covered Cherry Cookies.

Chocolate Covered Cherry Cookies

I'm not too terribly happy with these honestly. They spread more than I remember. I think I say that every year too. I need to change the base-cookie dough. Maybe a chocolate-krinkle type dough would be better.

But they're going to work with Dr. Mad Scientist tomorrow. I'm sure they can all pour a mean gel-plate/petri dish but can't bake their way out of a paperbag, so these will do just fine.

I also entered them into The Great Virtual Cookie Swap 2008 that I found when I was reading Melissa's blog.

I'll be entering probably one more entry--Dr. Mad Scientist's last day of one of his classes is also a potluck.

I guess there's prizes involved. I'll be honest, I'm kind of in it more for the cookie porn!!!

Tomorrow--hopefully an FO!

I made those last year after I saw the recipe on your blog and couldn't get the idea out of my head. They were a big hit. I might just have to make them again this year. Mine didn't spread as much as the ones in your photo. Not that it matters--I'm sure they taste the same. That flavor combo is one of the all time best.

I definitely want to try these. Don't you just love all the cookies over at the swap??

Normally I avoid making cookies for just this reason - they always spread (and then burn from being too thin)... but the chocolate looks irresistable... mmmm chocolate....

(and, some scientists *can* bake... but in this new job, I have yet to find another one besides myself!)

Mmm, that looks good. I'm taking the entire week of Christmas off so I can spend 3 days baking! Maybe I'll give these a whirl.

I did not get around to making these last year, though I wanted to. It's likely I won't make them again this year. :o)

who cares if they are flatter than you thought they should be? They are CHOCOLATE! That covers a multitude of sins.
