Cherry Kamakazis!!!!

Hello...LJ has always been a favorite of mine because of little communities like this one! How exciting...vegan friends and lots of food!! I'll submit a good recipe I came up with the other's yummy...promise.

Tazi's Cherry Kamakazis

1/2C "butter" at room temp ( I found this is sort of a lot)
1 "egg" (I use a tapioca/psyillium husk substitute. For the water in the sub. use coffee instead)
1t vanilla ext
1/2t almond ext
2 and a half T carob
1C flour (white and wheat mix is good)
1/2t baking soda
1/2t salt
1C choco chops(optional)
frozen cherries
Almonds or other nut of choice

Preheat to 375 F

Cream the butter and the sugar until throroughly creamed. Beat the "egg", vanilla and almond till well beaten. Mix together the dry ingredients (flour, nuts, salt etc.) in seperate bowl. Mix dry and wet together, do not include cherries just yet!! (this dough is awesome and safe to eat raw!!) Spoon onto baking sheet about 2 inches apart..if you feel you don't want one big cookie. On top of each lump of dough press two cherries in. If you have a little dough left over put it on top of the cherries. They got the name kamakazis because the cherries like to stroll off the cookies sometimes. Bake it for 7 to 10 minutes. The cookies are dark so it's hard to tell when they're done..I suggest that you just stick with around 10 minutes at the most. Check after 7 or 8 minutes to prevent any catastraphes. If the cherries slide off...just put em back on. The cookies will be a little gooey because of the cherry juice, but they are delicious. I do not recommend stacking them on top of eachother until thoroughly cooled. They stick together.

That's it...enjoy, they're good, but a little heavy. Two at a time will be enough.
