We love chocolate! Using white chocolate chips adds a little variety, as in these Cherry Chip Cookies. Some guests gave us a package of dried cherries from Wisconsin, so I created this recipe for Cherry Chip Cookies. As always, they’re pretty easy and the dough freezes well.
Cherry Chip Cookies
Preheat oven to 375 F. Line a baking sheet with parchment paper.
In the bowl of an electric mixer, beat butter until softened and creamy. Add sugars; mix in egg, almond extract and vanilla.
Mix flour and salt together. With mixer on low, blend in flour mixture just until smooth.
Gradually add oats, coconut flakes, white chocolate chips, dried cherries, and toasted almonds. Mix until well blended.
Roll cookie dough into 1-inch balls or use a #40 scoop. Place several inches apart on the baking sheet. Bake for about 14 minutes until golden brown.
