Choco cherry tastic!

It's that time of the week again! This weeks choice was the delectable sounding double chocolate cherry cookies as chosen by Megan of My Baking Adventures. Cookies again I hear you say, but who ever gets tired of chomping on a cookie? Not me!


The preparation for these biscuits were exactly the same as the toasted almond and chocolate chip cookies from two weeks ago (or last week for me), mix, chill, chop, bake. So simple yet so delicious. I much preferred these to the choc chip versions, although I'm a cherry addict so I think I'm a little bias here. I adored the rich, velvety taste of the chocolate when paired with those wonderful dried cherries, add a cup of tea and I was in comfort food heaven.

Check out the other Sweet Melissa Sundays girls for more cookie fun and also don't forget to check Megan's blog for the recipe, you won't be sorry!

Hi Katie!

Your post made me smile- first of all, I love the title, and then I couldn't help but find it adorable when you referred to the cookies as biscuits. It's so fun to meet a fellow baker through SMS that's "across the pond!" Just goes to show how baking can bring people together, even if they're world's apart!

I'd love for you to drop by my site if you have a chance, to check out my cookies as well! Hope to talk to you again after the next SMS postings. Have a wonderful week!

-Joy

Hi, I'm Debby...and I'm a sugarholic. My blood sugar just spiked as I drooled at your recipes. I'm trying to limit how much I bake, because I'd eat the whole batch. Lovely. Thanks for stopping by my blog.
