Growing up, I loved visiting Dairy Queen for their cherry-dipped ice cream cone. There’s something about the creamy vanilla extreme and the tart, crunchy red shell that just made it the perfect treat all year long. When developing this recipe, I was inspired by just that. From Valentine’s Day to your everyday Thursday, these cookies are sure to be a crowd pleaser.
