Easy Chocolate Cherry Cookies Recipe

I love quick and easy baking recipes that don't take hours to make. I got this super easy cookie recipe from my sister a few months ago...we just love making them! You will only need four ingredients to make them and only one large mixing bowl. No fuss cookies!

Easy Chocolate Cherry Cookies Recipe

1 roll Pillsbury Sugar Cookie Refrigerated Dough
1/4 cup cocoa powder
6 Tablespoons cherry juice
confectioner's sugar for dusting

Tip: You can use regular bottled 100% cherry juice or drain some juice from a jar of maraschino cherries.

Preheat oven to 350 degrees F.

Remove roll of refrigerated sugar cookie dough from refrigerator and allow it to stand at room temperature for 20 minutes. It will be easier to work with once you let it come to room temperature for a few minutes. Tear it a part into smaller pieces.

Place cookie dough pieces, cocoa powder and cherry juice into a large mixing bowl. Blend the three ingredients together. The batter will be stiff, so use your hands if possible and do the best you can with the blending process. You can add a little more cherry juice if necessary.

Roll the cookie dough into 2 1/2" round balls. Place them onto a lightly greased baking sheet about 3" a part. They will expand during the baking process. Bake in the oven for 7 to 9 minutes or until done. Remove and let them cool on a wire rack. Once they are cool, dust the tops with a little bit of confectioner's sugar. Store cookies in an airtight container.
