Chewy White Chocolate and Tart Cherry Cookies

Chewy-White-Chocolate-and-Tart-Cherry-Cookies

Happy Labor Day!

Now that it’s getting darker earlier in the eve, football season is starting, and there are even pumpkin thingies in the stores, it should be okay for me to post some Holiday cookie ideas.

Although….no need to wait for the Holidays to make these yummies.

I got the idea for this cookie recipe from a super tasty sandwich shop called The Robin’s Nest in Salt Lake City.  Their sandwiches are unique and sooooo tasty.

At the counter where you place your order, they had these cookies made with dried cherries and white chocolate.  What a great idea combining the taste of tart cherries with sweet white chocolate.  And so pretty too.

So of course I had to make them.

My version of these yummies is made with the Nestle Toll House Cookie recipe.

All you do next is add some white chocolate chips (small chucks of white chocolate would work good too), and dried cherries.

Super simple and sooo good.

Thank you so much for stopping by!

Let’s check out the ingredients.

Chewy-White-Choclate-and-Tart-Cherry-Cookies

Flour, sugar, baking soda, salt, brown sugar, butter, eggs, white chocolate chips, and dried cherries.

Here’s how to make it:

Preheat the oven to 375 degrees F.

In a medium size bowl,

1-add-flour-to-bowl

add the flour,

2-add-baking-soda-to-bowl

baking soda,

3-add-salt-to-bowl

and salt.

4-mix-dry-ingredients

Mix the dry ingredients together and set aside.

5-add-butter-to-bowl

In a large mixing bowl add the butter,

6-add-sugar-to-bowl

sugar,

7-add-brown-sugar-in-bowl

brown sugar,

8-add-vanilla-extract-in-bowl

vanilla extract,

8.5-beat-butter-and-sugar

and beat until creamy.

9-eggs-in-bowl

Then,

10-add-eggs-to-cookie-batter

mix in the eggs.

11-add-flour-to-cookie-batter

12-add-flour-to-cookie-batter

On low speed (so the flour doesn’t come fly out of the bowl…not that this has ever happened to me), gradually add the flour mixture in with the cookie dough mixture.  Mix well.

13-add-white-chocolate-chips

Next,

14-add-white-chocolate-chips

add the white morsels,

15-add-dried-cherries-to-cookie-dough

and….

16-add-dried-cherries-to-cookie-dough

….the dried cherries.

17-mix-cookie-dough

Then,

18-mix-cookie-dough

stir all ingredients together with a large sturdy spoon or spatula.

19-cookie-dough-on-pan

On an ungreased cookie sheet, drop the cookie dough by about 2 rounded teaspoons.

3-Chewy-White-Chocolate-and-Tart-Cherry-Cookies

For a chewy cookie, let them bake until the cookie looks like it’s not quite done in the middle (about 7 to 7-1/2 minutes depending on your oven and size of the cookie).

Remove from the oven and carefully transfer the cookies from the baking sheet with a spatula on to a wire rack and let cool a few minutes until the cookies are set.

As the cookie sits on the rack there should be just enough heat left for the middle to firm up but still be chewy.

Directions:

Preheat the oven to 375 degrees F. In a medium size bowl, add the flour, baking soda, and salt. Mix the dry ingredients together and set aside. In a large mixing bowl add the butter, sugar, brown sugar, vanilla extract, and beat until creamy. Then mix in the eggs.

On an ungreased cookie sheet, drop the cookie dough by about 2 rounded teaspoons. Bake in the preheated oven. For a chewy cookie, let them bake until the cookie looks like it’s not quite done in the middle (about 7 to 7-1/2 minutes depending on your oven and size of the cookie). Remove from the oven and carefully transfer the cookies from the baking sheet with a spatula on to a wire rack and let cool a few minutes until the cookies are set.
