Recipe #70 - Double Chocolate Cherry Drops

What could possibly be wrong with these - you've got yer chocolate and yer cherries and, what more could you need? The original recipe called for corn syrup which freaks me out, so I replaced it with agave nectar. Verdict? Still yummy!

1 3/4 c. flour
3/4 c. unsweetened cocoa
pinchie of salt
2 sticks of butter, softened
1 c. sugar
1/4 c. agave nectar (or corn syrup)
2 t. vanilla
1 egg
8 oz. semisweet chocolate chips or chunks
1 c. dried tart cherries

Preheat oven to 350. Whisk together flour, cocoa and salt. In a big bowl, beat butter and sugar til creamy. Beat in agave, vanilla and egg until happily mixed. Blend on low the flour mixture, chockie and cherries until just mixed. Drop onto ungreased baking sheets. Bake until tops are just firm - 10 minutes.

Sigh. I am SO happy August is over.
