Rich, dark chocolate brownie cookies with a sour cherry jam center and lots of chocolate drizzle on top.
So, I’ve been on a bit of a cherry kick…not sure if you noticed. I’ve been all about the fresh frozen cherries, dried cherries, and now I’m continuing the trend with a different cherry focus — Sour Cherry Jam. These cookies bring out the best of the chocolate/cherry combo. The brownie cookies are deep with flavor and then the jam on top is sweet, yet a little sour, contrasting perfectly with the rich cookie base.
And now I need to tell you about this jam from Hickin’s Mountain Mowings Farm. I grew up on this stuff, quite literally. Every Christmas, with much anticipation, an enormous box would arrive at our door. Inside would be jams, pickles, maple candies, dilly beans, and more holiday goodies. The wild blueberry jam was always the most sought after among us kids — Hands down the best jam I’ve ever had.
This little Vermont company is also very famous for their pickles – Maple Icicle Chip, Cooler Dill, Mustard Crock, Frickin’ Hots, Cinnamon, Peppered, Horseradish Dill and more. Whenever a jar of the Mustard Crock pickles shows up anywhere near me, they somehow, *magically* disappear in a flash. No idea how that happens!
If you’re in Vermont, you can find them at some local stores and in the summer around the state at farmer’s markets. You can thank me later.
