      1 c  Dried cherries
    1/3 c  Cherry Herring or other
           .. cherry liqueur
    2/3 c  Sugar
      6 oz Semisweet chocolate; broken

      2 tb Unsweetened cocoa powder
      1 ts Ground cinnamon
        c  Walnuts; unchopped

MMMMM------------------------FOR ASSEMBLY-------------
      1    Egg
      1 ts Water
  Combine cherries and liqueur. Cover and let stand
  4 hours, or overnight, stirring occasionally.
  Beat cream cheese and butter until very light and
  well combined. Slowly beat in flour and salt to
  form a very soft dough. Form into four disks, wrap
  and chill until firm enough to handle, about an
  hour, or overnight.
  Drain cherries, reserving syrup for another use
  such as topping for ice cream or crepes. Combine
  sugar, chocolate, cocoa and cinnamon in a food
  processor. Pulse-chop until chocolate forms pea
  sized pieces. Add walnuts and drained cherries.
  Pulse-chop until coarsely chopped.
  Preheat oven to 350.
  Beat together egg and water; set aside.
  Roll dough to form an 8" circle. Brush with egg
  glaze. Sprinkle with a quarter of the filling,
  pressing in lightly. Cut into 12 wedges; roll up
  from wide end to form crescents. Place, point side
  down on ungreased cookie sheets. Brush with egg
  glaze. Repeat with remaining dough.
  Bake until golden brown, 30 to 35 minutes. Let
  cool on sheets 2 minutes before removing to wire
  racks to cool completely. Store in airtight
  containers. These freeze well.
