Serves 20people
Ingredients
1/2
stick (1/4 cup) unsalted butter, softened
3/4
cup brown sugar
1
large egg
1
tsp vanilla extract
1/8
tsp almond extract
Small amount of pink gel food coloring
1
& 1/2 cups all purpose flour
1/2
tsp baking soda
1/4
tsp salt
3/4
cup drained & finely chopped maraschino cherries (plus extra for garnish)
3/4
cup semi-sweet chocolate chips (plus extra for garnish)
Directions
1.
Preheat the oven to 350º F.

In a mixing bowl beat the butter and brown sugar with an electric mixer for 1 minute, or until combined.
3.
Add in the egg and extracts, beat again.
4.
Add in a small amount of pink gel food coloring and mix.
5.
In separate small bowl, whisk together the flour, baking soda, and salt.

Gradually add the dry ingredients to wet ingredients, mixing by hand with a spatula.
7.
Add in the finely chopped maraschino cherries and chocolate chips, mix by hand until combined. (The batter will be thick.)
8.
Use a cookie scoop to drop dough balls onto a silicone lined baking sheet. Press additional cherries and chocolate chips into the outside of the dough balls.
