Gluten & Sugar Free Chocolate Covered Cherry cookies...

~Chocolate Covered Cherry Cookies~

2 ½ cups blanched almond flour
½ teaspoon celtic sea salt

¼-1/2 cup
½ cup Ghee, palm shortening, or coconut oil
1 teaspoon cherry flavoring or pure syrup (or any other flavor desired without sugar)
1 teaspoon natural vanilla flavoring 
1 cup dark or milk chocolate chips (make sure the chocolate is gluten free. I like Enjoy Life!)

In a large bowl, stir together the almond flour and salt. In a small bowl, combine oil, honey and extract. Stir wet ingredients into dry. Put dough in freezer for 30 minutes. Roll dough into several bite sized balls, lay on parchment lined cookie sheet, and slightly press cookie down. Bake at 350° for 5-7 minutes until brown around the edges. Cool for ½ hour

In a small saucepan, melt chocolate over very low heat, stirring continuously. Remove saucepan from heat and drizzle chocolate over each cookie. Allow cookies to cool on a parchment lined baking sheet. Serve and enjoy!

Could you use a different extract, like almond or vanilla? I don't like cherry.
