Chewy Oatmeal Cookies with White Chocolate & Tart Cherries

Chewy oatmeal cookies with a delightful combination of white chocolate morsels and tart dried cherries for a little sweet, a little tart and repeat.

Cherry Oatmeal Cookies

Soft and chewy oatmeal cookies are the best.

Especially when they have white chocolate morsels and tart dried cherries in each bite like these cookies do.

The white chocolate morsels give this cookie a wonderful sweet bite to it and the dried cherries add a little tartness.

And these two flavors in combination with the heartiness of oatmeal taste devine.

There’s also a very subtle taste of salt in these cookies that is so good along with all of the flavors and textures going on in each bite.

Dried cherries may not always be available in the grocery store and if they are, a bag of them may be fairly expensive.  They are generally located by where the raisins are.

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

I buy dried cherries at a local ranch-type market where they sell them in bulk in a bin.  This way I get just the amount that I need plus a few for snacking of course.

Serve these delicious oatmeal cookies as a snack, dessert or just because.
