Chewy White Chocolate and Tart Cherry Cookies

Doesn’t require a special occasion to bake.  Just because is a good reason.

Tart Cherry Cookies

These cookies are chewy in the middle and have a little sweet and a little tart in each bite.

The edges have a slight crunch that is so good when biting into them because along with a crunch comes the chewy middle.

The white chocolate in these cookies is a pretty contrast to the deep red color of the dried tart cherries and the combination of both flavors and textures are wonderful together.

Dried tart cherries may be hard to find depending on the grocery store but they may be located close to where the raisins are.

Or, if the grocery store has bulk-type bins with nuts, grains and the like, they may also have dried cherries there.

These cookies are adapted from the Nestle Toll House Cookie recipe only instead of chocolate chips, white chocolate chips or morsels (small chucks of white chocolate would work good too), and dried cherries are added.

Here are more recipes with cherries you may like “No-Bake Cherry Cheese Pie“, “Cherry, Berry and Basil Margarita” and “Warm Cherry Pie Rolls“.

Let’s check out the ingredients.

Using a large sturdy spoon or spatula,

18-mix-cookie-dough

stir all ingredients together.

19-cookie-dough-on-pan

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

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.

Then enjoy each and every bite.
