Dark Chocolate Chip and Cherry Cookies
Chewy, chocolaty cookies get a twist and sweet tartness from dried cherries.
- 1/2 cup butter softened
- 1 cup lightly packed dark brown sugar
- 1/3 cup granulated sugar
- 2 large eggs
- 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
- 2 1/4 cup all purpose flour
- 1 teaspoon baking soda
- 1 teaspoon kosher salt
- 1 cup dark chocolate chips
- 1/2 cup dried cherries
Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
Cream together butter, dark sugar and granulated sugar until light and fluffy. Beat in eggs one at a time. Beat in vanilla.
In another bowl mix together flour, baking soda and kosher salt.
With mixer (or beaters) running, gradually add in flour mixture. Mix until well combined. Fold in chocolate chips and dried cherries.
Drop rounded tablespoonfuls of cookie dough 3 inches apart on a baking sheet. Bake in preheated oven 10 - 13 minutes or until cookies are lightly browned.
