I’m a sucker for spumoni ice cream. After all, what’s not to love? Chocolate, cherries and pistachios all swirled together to give you the perfect flavor combination.

When I came across a recipe for Spumoni Cookies, I had to try them. And they certainly don’t disappoint!

Spumoni Cookies

  • 1 cup butter, softened
  • 3/4 cup sugar
  • 3/4 cup packed brown sugar
  • 2 eggs
  • 1 tablespoon vanilla
  • 2 1/2 cups flour
  • 1/2 cup cocoa (I used dark cocoa for an even richer taste)
  • 1 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1 1/3 cups finely chopped pistachios, divided
  • 1 1/3 cups finely chopped dried cherries, divided
  • 1 3/4 cups semisweet chocolate chips
  • 1 tablespoon shortening

Preheat the oven to 350 degrees. In a large bowl, cream butter and sugars until light and fluffy. Beat in eggs and vanilla. Add flour, cocoa, baking soda and salt. Stir in 1 cup each pistachios and cherries.

Drop by tablespoonfuls 2 inches apart onto an ungreased baking sheet. Bake 10 to 12 minutes or until set. Cool on pans. Remove to wire racks to cool.

In a microwave, melt chocolate chips and shortening; stir until smooth. Dip each cookie halfway into chocolate, allowing excess to drip off. Sprinkle with remaining pistachios and cherries. Place on waxed paper and let stand until set.
