I ran across an old recipe in my heirloom family cookbook and I thought to share it with you

I'll scare it up and come back

Chocolate Cookie Dough

1/2 cup butter
1 cup sugar
1 egg
1 1/2 t vanilla
1 1/2 cup flour
1/2 cup cocoa powder
1/4 t salt
1/4 t baking powder
1/4 t soda

Cream butter and sugar, add fluffy egg and vanilla. Add remaining ingredients and blend at low speed for about a minute. Will form a stiff dough.

Frosting

10 oz jar of maraschino cherries, drain and retain syrup
1 cup (6 oz package) semisweet chocolate chips (not milk chocolate)
1/2 cup sweetened condensed milk (not evaporated)
1/4 t salt
1 1/2 t maraschino cherry syrup

Form dough into one inch balls and place two inches apart on ungreased cookie sheets. Place one cherry in each and press into dough. Do this with all of them before making frosting.

In small heavy saucepan over low heat, melt chocolate in sweetened condensed milk, stirring constantly. Remove from heat, add remaining ingredients, stir until smooth.

Put 1/2 t on each cookie, then bake at 350 for 8-10 minutes, until puffy. Store tightly covered.

Now I made pudding and put it on top of the cookies like one of those vanilla wafer pudding pies, but it was a mistake, made it Way too rich. The cookies stand alone. Maybe if you dipped them in pudding. Really they are good just with the icing

One variation I really like is to break up a six oz block of baker's semisweet and add the chocolate chunks to the dough. That's what I did when I was shy of ingredients the first time.

It was Really good and they didn't last long!

Here's the pudding anyway:

Chocolate Pudding

1 cup sugar
2 T corn starch
1/2 t salt
2 cups milk
2 beaten egg yolks
2 t butter
1 t vanilla extract
2 oz cut up unsweetened chocolate

In a pot, combine sugar corn starch and salt. Slowly add milk. Add chocolate. Cook slowly, stirring constantly, until mixture boils. Boil for one minute. Remove from heat.

Now this part is a bit tricky. You want to cook the egg in and make it rich, but you really don't want scrambled eggs in your pudding.

Place eggs yolks in a bowl. Stir 1/2 hot mixture into egg yolks. Return egg mixture to pot. Boil for one minute. Remove from heat. Add butter and vanilla. Pour into serving dishes. Serve warm or cold with whipped cream.

I use the cherry syrup in chocolate icing when I bake a chocolate cake.

Yeah, it's great!

I actually looked one of your cake recipes for my daughter's birthday. I bet it's good with all those pecans. I made a pecan pie last month and it had orange zest in it. It was pretty good, but there was too much orange. Next time I'll use less.
