Choco-nana Crinkle Cookies (Whole wheat, Egg free, Dairy free)

Black Forest Preserve

Black Forest Preserve is a great accompaniment with cheese, drizzled as an ice cream sauce, between layers of cakes or to sandwich cookies. It’s a preseve with lots of fresh cherries and little chocolate to complement the fruity cherry flavor. This is Schwarzwälder Kirschtorte in a bottle minus the whipped cream.
