Brownie -Cherry Thumbprint Cookies

Brownie-Cherry Thumbprint Cookies were to die for.  I originally wanted to do just Chocolate-Cherry Thumbprint cookies...and we for that post.  But I was thinking how much I love brownies...and putting cherries with just HAD to be heaven!  And it was! 

What you will need:

brownie mix
1 can of cherry pie filling
2 eggs
6 tbsp. of oil
2 tbsp of water (not shown)
1/2  cup of flour (not shown)
parchment paper (not shown)
cookie sheets

Step #1: Heat oven to 350 degrees F

Step #2: Line your cookie sheets with the parchment paper and set aside

Step #3: In a large bowl add - brownie mix, oil, water, eggs, and flour.   Using an electric mixer, mix well.  It will get thick so get as much as you can off the beaters and continue with a spoon OR your hands, like my daughter did. 

Step #4: Roll the dough into balls and put on the parchment paper. You can use your thumbs to make the imprint, but it just didn't look right to us, so we used one of our rounded measuring spoons.  It was PERFECT! 

Step #5: Add a cherry to each "imprint" with a little of the syrup.  If your imprint is bigger, you might get away with doing two cherries.  We tried two cherries and it didn't work..but the mistake was oh, so delish!

Step #6: Put in the oven for 4 minutes, then turn the cookie sheet around and bake for another 3 minutes.  Check with a toothpick.  If it comes out mostly clean, it is done.  DO NOT OVER COOK!.  

Step #7: Let cool and enjoy!
