Chocolate is near and dear to my heart and when you put it into a cookie three ways, you’ve completely won me over. These Chocolate Cherry Kiss Cookies are made with Hodgson Mill Whole Wheat Pastry Flour, Hodgson Mill Naturally White Flour, dried cherries, white chocolate chips and milk chocolate Hershey’s Kisses®.

No, I had big dreams for something with dark baking chocolate, maybe some red wine, or some molasses and spice, something dark and rich and red like cherries or pomegranates . . . but after several tests, several sinkfuls of dishes, and several test versions of a baking disaster now referred to as “Stupid Cake” . . .
