just what I was looking for, Member jordison

we had a brainstorm to make chocolate cherry cookies and when I found this recipe, I thought it would be perfect! The flavor is fabulous but I only got 2 1/2 dozen cookies out of a double batch (I wanted the cookie large enough so that the topping didn't run out of it while it was cooking - or maybe an inch to me is a lot bigger that the recipe means??).
