    These cookies are AMAZING! I made a few adjustments:

    I doubled the vanilla & almond extracts
    I used unsweetened cocoa powder (the recipe doesn't specify)
    I used fresh, sweet cherries instead of maraschino, and I added nearly 1/2 cup instead of just 1/4
    I left out the food coloring (didn't have any)

    I divided the dough into about 1 1/4 inch balls and cooked them for 10 minutes at 350. Decadent, moist (from the real cherries), and so, so good warm & gooey from the oven!
