One of my favorite desserts is the German Black Forest Cake. It is the perfect mix of sweet & rich & chocolate & cherry & of course butter... Since I made a batch of boozy whiskey cherries for Christmas I thought it would be the perfect time to transpose my favorite cake into a cookie form. So here is my "Black Forest Cookie".

Step 1: The Ingredients...

The Chocolate Wafers

Ingredients:
  • 2/3 stick unsalted butter (room temperature)
  • 1/2 cup sugar
  • 1/2 cup dutch processed cocoa powder
  • 1/2 large egg (break an egg into a cup, beat it, use half for this recipe - scramble the rest for breakfast!)
  • 1 tsp vanilla extract
  • 1/2 cup flour
  • 1/2 tsp cinnamon

Classic Vanilla Buttercream Frosting

Ingredients:
  • 1/2 cup unsalted butter (1 stick), room temperature
  • 1-1/2 - 2 cups sifted powdered sugar
  • 1/8 teaspoon table salt
  • 1/2 tablespoon vanilla extract
  • up to 2 tablespoons milk

Yummy, think I will end up eating the icing before I get to making the cookies.
