Chocolate Marshmallow Cookies or Chocolate Cherry Winks !

 Same recipe but your choice of two types of cookie ! I make a double batch of the cookie dough & bake up both at the same time ! These are a very fudgie cookie with a rich chocolate base that takes on the cherry or marshmallow topping in a perfect match ! This recipe makes 3 & 1/2 dozen cookies but you will want to double your ingedients so you have 3 & 1/2 dozen of each ! This original recipe was in  The Postman's Cookbook credited to Bernice Ferguson of Nebraska who called them Marshmallow Fudge Cookies ! THANK YOU BERNICE because this is one GREAT cookie that turned into two !

1 Cup Sugar
1/2 Cup Shortning
1 Egg
1 TSP Vanilla
2 Cups Flour
1/2 Cup Cocoa
1/2 TSP Baking Soda
1/2 TSP Salt
1/2 Cup Milk
Marshmallows cut in 1/2 OR I used Kraft Jet Puffed Snowman French Vanilla Snowman Marshmallows & left them whole , they are small ! If using large marshmallows cut in half put cut side down into the cookie!

1 Jar Maraschino  Cherries Drained well & cut cherries in half, press cut side down in the cookie!
Remember in halving cherries or marshmallows you only need enough for 3 & 1/2 Dozen.

Sift all the dry ingredients together & set aside. In a large mixing bowl cream shortening with the sugar. Beat well. Add egg & vanilla & beat again . Add dry ingredients alternately with the milk starting with dry & ending with the dry. Chill dough. When chilled drop on lightly greased cookie sheets by teaspoonfuls. Bake in a preheated 350 degree oven for 6-8 minutes ( again my slow oven has these perfect at 8 minutes, you want these to have loss their glossy tops & slightly puffed up). Remove from oven & gently  but firmly push marshmallow or cherry into the cookie. Return to the oven for 2 minutes. Remove from sheets & let cool. Store in an airtight container with layers of wax paper between layers!

These are such pretty cookies but not only are they pretty they are PRETTY ADDICTIVE, who doesn'r love a fudgie chocolate cookie & then add that marshmallow or cherry , HARD TO BEAT!
