Cherry Danish Cookies

Here's a new recipe for Christmas.  Eye appealing and very tasty. Cherry in the center allows the cookie to be eye appealing while delicious to eat..Sweet and a bit tart.  They remind me of a small danish.  So pretty.

The batter is a little sticky so I made them on the order of a drop cookie because making balls out of the batter would be messy and I didn't want to add anymore flour.  If you prefer you can either refrigerate the dough or add a bit more flour so you can roll the dough into balls.

Cherry Danish Cookies

  • 1 cup sugar
  • 1/2 cup softened butter
  • 1 egg
  • 1 tsp. vanilla
  • 1/3 cup sour cream
  • 1/2 tsp. baking soda
  • 2 cups flour
  • 1 can cherry pie filling
  • white chocolate, for drizzling on top
Preheat the oven to 350 degrees 

Place sugar and softened butter in mixing bowl.  Beat until smooth, add egg and vanilla while beating slowly.  Add sour cream and baking soda.  Slowly add flour and beat until all is incorporated.

On a large cookie sheet either using a medium size meatball type scoop place about 1 tablespoon of batter.  Make a slight indentation in center of batter and add a cherry pie filling. Leave some distance between each cookie.  They will spread slightly.

Bake depending of size of cookie approximately 12 to 15 minutes.  Allow to cool slightly before moving them to rack.  When cooled drizzle with melted white chocolate morsels.  Follow instructions on bag of morsels until melted . Stir after each 10 second interval while melting.

With a small spoon drizzle cookies with white chocolate.  Allow chocolate to harden and store in an airtight container in cool area.

recipe makes about 30 to 36 cookies depending on size.

Happy Baking from my kitchen to yours,
