Gluten Free Cherry Chocolate Chip Cookies

2 teaspoons Gluten Free baking powder (Clabber Girl)

1 1/2 Cups Gluten Free Pie Crust Mix (see in flour mixes)

1/4 Cup Pure Cocoa Powder

1 1/2 cups Brown Sugar

2 eggs

1/4 cup of softened butter

1/2 Cup pitted and chopped Dark Sweet Cherries ( I used the frozen cherries)

8 0z. Cream cheese

1 Cup GF Chocolate chips

Place pie crust flour mix, baking powder, cocoa, and brown sugar in mixer or food processor and mix or pulse until blended. Then add eggs, softened butter, chopped cherries, and cream cheese, blend until all incorporated and smooth. Remove beaters and fold in chocolate chips. Place dough in the refrigerator for about 30 minutes until dough is stiff.  When ready to bake preheat oven to 350*F.  Place dough onto lightly greased cookie sheet by a tablespoon each, place in oven and bake for 25 minutes. When done remove from oven and top each cookie with a slice of cherry. This should make about 2 dozen cookies.
