These cookies were so freaking good. Also, they have fruit in them so you can totally eat them for breakfast. Perfect, right?
Before I get to the recipe I wanted to show you guys a neat little trick. If you don't have any brown sugar in the house, you can make your own!
All you need to do is add molasses to granulated sugar. For 3/4 cup of sugar, add 3/4 tbsp of molasses. Mix it all together with a fork and voila! DIY brown sugar!
Now on to the cookies!
Cherry Chocolate Chip Cookies
Adapted From Food Network Kitchens
1 stick butter, melted
3/4 cup brown sugar
3/4 cup granulated sugar
2 large eggs
1 tsp vanilla
2 cups chocolate chips
1/2 cup dried cherries
2 1/4 cup flour
3/4 tsp baking soda
1 tsp salt
1. Preheat oven to 375. Mix butter and sugars in a large mixing bowl. Add in eggs and vanilla until combined. Slowing add flour, baking soda, and salt. Stir in chocolate chips and dried cherries.
2. Place heaping tablespoons on dough onto a cookie sheet about 2 inches apart. Bake for 12-15 minutes, until cookies are golden brown. Let cookies cool on a rack before serving.
The cookies will stay nice and chewy for a solid week if you put them in an air-tight container. This recipe makes about 30 cookies, depending on how large you make them. Enjoy!
