This is a recipe for a cookie that my mother used to make every Holiday season when I was growing up. It was always one of my favorites so when I recently ran across this recipe again, I decided to make some for my family.
They were JUST as good as I remembered!!
1 1/2 cups flour
1/2 cup chocolate malted milk powder
1/2 teaspoon baking soda
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/2 teaspoon cinnamon
1/2 cup shortening
2/3 cup firmly packed brown sugar
2 Tablespoons maraschino cherry juice
1 teaspoon vanilla flavoring
1/4 cup maraschino cherries, finely chopped
Bake in 350 degree oven for 10-12 minutes.
Remove cookies from oven and allow to cool a couple of minutes on cookie sheet.
