The addition of dried cherries to chocolate chip cookies brings an exciting fruity dimension that has gained popularity in recent years.

1. Preheat and Prepare:

  • Preheat your oven to 375°F (190°C).
  • Line baking sheets with parchment paper to prevent sticking.

2. Combine Dry Ingredients:

  • In a mixing bowl, whisk together the all-purpose flour and baking soda. Set this aside for now.

3. Cream the Butter and Sugars:

  • In another mixing bowl, using an electric mixer or hand mixer, cream together the softened butter, granulated sugar, and brown sugar until the mixture is smooth and creamy.

4. Add Eggs and Vanilla:

  • Add the eggs, one at a time, mixing well after each addition.
  • Stir in the pure vanilla extract and blend until fully incorporated.

5. Gradually Add Dry Ingredients:

  • Slowly incorporate the dry ingredients (flour and baking soda mixture) into the wet ingredients (butter and sugar mixture). Mix until just combined; be careful not to overmix.

6. Fold in Cherries and Chocolate Chips:

  • Gently fold in the dried cherries and semisweet chocolate chips into the cookie dough. This will create a delightful contrast of flavors.

7. Form Cookie Dough Balls:

  • Use a cookie scoop or a spoon to portion out the cookie dough into balls, each about the size of a golf ball.

8. Place on Baking Sheets:

  • Arrange the cookie dough balls on the prepared baking sheets, leaving some space between them as they will spread during baking.

9. Bake to Perfection:

  • Bake in the preheated oven for 10-12 minutes, or until the edges of the cookies turn a golden brown while the centers remain slightly soft. Keep a close eye on them to avoid over-baking.

10. Cool and Enjoy: – Allow the cookies to cool on the baking sheets for a few minutes before transferring them to a wire rack to cool completely. – Once cooled, indulge in these sweet and tangy Cherry Chocolate Chip Cookies, and savor the delightful combination of flavors!
