Cherry Vanilla Chocolate Chip Pudding Cookies

In honor of Valentine’s Day, I have some very festive pudding cookies to share. They use the basic pudding chip cookie recipe as a backdrop, except cherry extract is substituted for the vanilla and several squeezes of red food coloring gel are added. Milk chocolate chips accent these pretty treats, reminding one of chocolate covered cherries in a cookie form.
