Enjoyed these cookies! Simple but sweet with the cherry chips. I used all butter and the first batch was was too soft and spread paper thin during baking. Added another cup of flour and continued baking, and they were perfect. Not a fault of the recipe since I subbed butter. Cherry chips are hard to find, usually a seasonal item at stores including Walmart, but I ordered mine from Amazon. Thanks for sharing the recipe!
