I just love this time of year, it really puts me into the baking mood. It gets colder outside, and I just love to stay warm in my nice cozy house and bake.
With Halloween right around the corner, I was in a kooky creepy baking mood! I would like to share Creepy Cherry Colossal cookies recipe with you all.
Ingredients you will need:
½ cup of shortening
1 cup of brown sugar
½ cup of sugar
¼ cup of buttermilk (I did not have buttermilk so I used the “buttermilk substitute” all you need is a cup of milk and a table spoon of vinegar mix the milk and the vinegar and then let it sit for 5 minutes, then use the needed amount for the recipe)
1 teaspoon of vanilla extract
3-1/2 cups of flour
½ teaspoon of salt
½ teaspoon of baking soda
1 (21 oz) can of Lucky Leaf cherry pie filling
Mix together shortening, sugars, eggs buttermilk and vanilla. Then add the flour salt and the baking soda then put the mixture in the refrigerator for an hour… I would suggest longer, the longer it is in the refrigerator the easier it will be to work with.
Cut the dough in half, roll dough into half dollar sized balls. Flatten one ball at a time on a cookie sheet then add a teaspoon of cherry filling to the top then add another flattened ball to the top, be careful not to press down to hard the cherry filling will squish out, seal the edges, and repeat until you are out of dough.
Cook at 375 degrees for 10 minutes until golden brown.
Decorate the cookies as you wish, my daughter decorated some cookies with creepy spiders ...
My family and my co-workers loved these cookies, but warning they are big! You could always make them smaller, they will be just as good.
Make sure to check out the great recipes on the Lucky Leaf site, and like them on Facebook and follow them on twitter for more information.
