Step 1

Preheat oven to 350 F.

In a large bowl, beat butter, sugar, egg, and rum extract until light and fluffy.

In a separate bowl, sift together flour, cocoa, salt, baking powder and baking soda. Add to creamed butter mixture. Combine well.

Using a 1 tablespoon scoop, roll cookie dough into 30 balls.

Flatten each cookie dough ball and place a cherry in the middle. Mold cookie dough around the cherry, and place 2 inches apart on cookie sheet.

Bake about 8 minutes, until done.

Cool on a wire rack.

Whisk together powdered sugar, 4 teaspoons reserved maraschino cherry juice and 1/2 teaspoon rum extract. Add more maraschino cherry juice if needed until glaze is a good drizzling consistency. Drizzle over cooled cookies.
