Day 10 of #Choctoberfest!! First I need to start with I received free product from Imperial Sugar in exchange for a post all the opinions are my own.

What better way to use Imperial Sugar then making a Chocolate sugar cookie, but plain chocolate sugar cookies were well just a little to plain so I had to add some cherries to push this one over the top. These little gems will be the center pieces of my Christmas Cookie platters this year. Don’t the look like Roudolph noses??? Yes, I know Christmas is still I few days away but I like to plan ahead. Pour yourself an Ice Cold Glass of Milk and let’s get started.

Preheat oven to 375 degrees and line three baking sheets with parchment paper, set aside.

2 cups flour

1 tsp baking soda

1/4 tsp salt

1 (4oz) package Unsweetened Chocolate

1/2 cup butter

8 ounces Cream cheese, softened and cubed

1-1/4 cups Imperial Sugar, divided

1 egg room temperature

1 tsp vanilla

1 can cherry pie filling

1/2 tsp almond extract

Mix flour, baking soda and salt in a small bowl, set aside. Microwave chocolate and butter in a large microwave safe bowl for 2 minutes. Stir until chocolate is completely melted. Add cream cheese and continue to stir until cream cheese is completely melted. Stir in 1 cup sugar, egg, and vanilla. Add flour mixture and mix well. Place Dough in fridge for about 20 minutes.

Roll dough into one inch balls and then roll into a bowl filled with your remaining 1/4 cup of Imperial Sugar and place on already prepared baking sheet. Press your thumb into center of each cookie.

In a small bowl mix cherry pie filling with almond extract.

Into the center of each cookie fill indentation with one cherry.

Bake 8-10 minutes at 375 degrees. Cool one minute on baking tray and then move to cooling rack to let cool completely. ENJOY! 🙂
