 --------  ------------  --------------------------------
      1/2  c             butter or margarine
    1      c             brown sugar
    1                    egg
    1      tsp           vanilla
      1/2  tsp           almond extract
    2      squares       unswtnd. chocolate -- melted (1 oz)
    2      c             all purpose flour
      1/2  tsp           soda
      1/4  tsp           salt
      3/4  c             dairy sour cream
      1/2  c             fine macaroon crumbs
      1/2  c             chopped & drained maraschino cherries
    1      c             coarsely chopped fresh mushrooms
 Cream butter and sugar until fluffy.  Add egg, vanilla and almond
 extract and beat thoroughly.  Stir in chocolate.  Sift flour, soda and
 salt, and add to creamed mixture alternately with the sour cream.  Mix
 well and add remaining ingredients.  Drop from teaspoon at least 2
 inches apart on a greased cookie sheet.  Bake in moderate oven (350)
 for 12 minutes or until done.  Remove from pan and cool.  They will
 stay beautifully moist and tender for days.
 Note:  I don't care much for candied fruits in my baking, so I omitted
 the cherries, and thought the cookies were great, and so did those who
 tried them.  I was careful, though, not to tell them mushrooms were
 the secret ingredient.

 NOTES : Ok, now, before you all say “Yuck!”, give these cookies a chance.  They
  have a nice light, moist consistency and are actually very good.
