Chocolate Sundae Cookies

1 1/2 cups flour
1/2 tsp. soda
1/2 tsp. salt
2/3 cup brown sugar
1/2 cup shortening (I used butter flavored
1 egg
1 tsp. vanilla
2 squares unsweetened chocolate, melted
2 tbsp. milk
1/4 cup cherry juice
1/4 cup maraschino cherries, chopped
1/2 cup walnuts, chopped
Some large marshmallows, cut in half (Jet Puffed!)

Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. Line a couple of cookie sheets with parchment.

Cream brown sugar, shortening, egg and vanilla until well blended. Add melted unsweetened chocolate and mix well. Add dry ingredients with milk, cherry juice, cherries, nuts and mix until well blended.

Drop by teaspoon onto cookie sheets and bake at 350 degrees for 12 minutes.

As soon as the cookies come out of the oven, press a “Jet-Puffed” marshmallow in the center. Let the cookies sit on cookie sheet until sturdy enough to transfer, then move to a wire rack. Spoon glaze over marshmallow, covering it completely. Cap with a stemmed cherry or cherry half.

Shiny Glaze

6 ounces bittersweet or semi-sweet chocolate, chopped
4 tablespoons butter
4 teaspoons light corn syrup or golden syrup
1/4 teaspoon vanilla extract

In a heavy saucepan, melt butter. When butter is partially melted, stir in chocolate and corn syrup. Stir until smooth. Remove from heat and stir in vanilla.
