I love these cookies! The dried cherries give the cookies a really nice tang. I didn’t freeze mine but I don’t see why they wouldn’t freeze well.
Cherry, Chocolate Chip, Oatmeal Cookies
1 1/2 cups flour
1 tsp baking powder
2 cups rolled oats
1 cup butter, softened
1 cup packed brown sugar
1/2 cup sugar
1 1/2 tsps vanilla
2 cups dried cherries
1 cup semi-sweet chocolate chips
Preheat oven to 350º.
In a small bowl, mix the flour, baking powder, and oatmeal. Set aside.
Cream the butter, brown sugar, and sugar in a large mixing bowl until light and fluffy. Add the eggs and vanilla and mix well. Add the flour/oatmeal mixture and mix well.
Stir in the dried cherries and chocolate chips until well distributed throughout the dough.
Drop by rounded tablespoonfuls onto a cookie sheet. Bake for 10 to 12 minutes or until the cookies are golden brown.
Cool on the cookie sheet for 5 minutes before removing them to a wire rack to cool completely.
Makes 3 dozen.
