Chewy Oatmeal Cherry Cookies
Serves: Makes about 2 dozen
  • 1 stick (1/2 cup) butter, softened
  • 1 cup packed light brown sugar
  • 2 eggs
  • 1 tsp vanilla extract
  • 1 cup all purpose flour
  • 1 tsp baking soda
  • 1 tsp cinnamon
  • ½ salt
  • 1½ quick oats
  • ½ cup dried cherries
  • ½ cup mixed pecans and walnuts
  1. Preheat over to 350ยบ.
  2. Cream butter, brown sugar, egg, vanilla until smooth.
  3. In a separate bowl, whisk flour, baking soda, cinnamon and salt.
  4. Stir into the butter mixture and mix until incorporated. Stir in cherries and nuts.
  5. Chill the dough for 15-20 mins.
  6. Spoon out tablespoon sized balls of dough onto a parchment lined cookie sheet about 2 inches apart.
  7. Bake for 8-10 mins until golden around the edges but still soft in the middle (this will keep the cookies chewy and gooey). Remove and let the cookies set up for 5 min before transferring to a wire rack to cool completely.
