I’m telling you, Crisco puts out some darned good cookie recipes! This is the second one I’ve tried recently and it is yet another that hit it out of the ball park! And for once, Hubs and I both agreed on five stars. This does, in fact, have all the characteristics of Black Forest Cake – dark chocolate, creamy white chocolate and sweet-tart cherries - with the added crunch of almonds (I used chopped rather than sliced). They are at once gooey, chewy, crispy, and creamy. The richest, most decadent oatmeal cookie you’ll ever eat.



These were VERY good. You can use chips if you don't feel like chopping chocolate, but I like the chunks- they go better with the cookie, I think. Big hit at the office.



YOU HAVE TO TRY THESE!!! I had to improvise because I didn't have everything, but these are AMAZING cookies. I used dried cranberries instead of cherries, chopped walnuts instead of almonds, and 1/2 cup of butter with 1/2 cup of crisco because I didn't have butter flavored crisco. I used 6 ounces of milk chocolate chips because I didn't have the semisweet bar.
