4 tsp Cherry Juice (Juice from Marchino/Salad Cherries)
12 Maraschino Cherries (chopped)
1 Egg
½ cup Pistachios (shelled)
½ cup Dried Cherries

Preheat oven to 350.

Mix flour and baking powder together and set aside.

Cream butter, ½ cup of sugar, cherry juice and chopped maraschino cherries. Add egg and mix.

Finely chop the pistachios and dried cherries and add to mixer. Gradually add in the flour mixture and mix until combined.

Use a cookie scoop to make a total of 36 cookie balls.

Arrange a dozen cookie balls on a cookie sheet lined with parchment paper. Press down each cookie ball. Bake for 12 minutes.

Once cooled, dip half of the cookie in melted white chocolate.
