I got this from a recipe group I'm in. Haven't made it yet & wanted to save it here. It was getting raves in the group. Also, a lot of people were saying that they substituted dried sweetened cranberries for the cherries. Where it calls for milk chocolate, I plan to sub semi-sweet because it sounds as if it may be too sweet with white & milk chocolate IMHO
- 1⁄2 cup butter (1/4 lb.) or 1⁄2 cup margarine (1/4 lb.)
- 1⁄2 cup granulated sugar
- 1⁄2 cup firmly packed brown sugar
- 1 large egg
- 2 teaspoons vanilla extract
- 1 1⁄2 cups flour
- 1⁄2 teaspoon baking soda
- 1 dash salt
- 3⁄4 cup white chocolate chips
- 3⁄4 cup milk chocolate chips
- 1⁄2 cup coarsely chopped pecans
- 1 cup dried cherries
- Preheat oven to 350°.
- Cream butter and sugars together until light and fluffy. Add Vanilla & egg. Beat thoroughly.
- Mix all dry ingredients except the two chips, the pecans and the cherries in a medium bowl.
- Add to wet ingredients and mix well.
- Fold in cherries, chips and nuts.
- Spoon out rounded teaspoonsful of dough onto ungreased cookie sheets.
- Bake about 12 minutes. Cool on sheet for about one minute then transfer to cooling racks to finish cooling.
- *Note- if anyone finds anything wrong with the directions please let me know. The original directions simply said "make like you would chocolate chip cookies" so I wanted to be more specific for those with less baking experience.
Delicious cookies, definitely gourmet in taste. I used instead of the two kinds of chips 1 cup of swirled white and chocolate chips. I also cut the dried cherries in smaller pieces. These are definitely more adult in taste, a great thing for a womans tea, or as a gift.
Wonderful cookies! I took a batch in to work and they were devoured. The whole cherries were a bit much for me, so I made another batch, cutting the cherries in half, and they were perfect.
These are very good and a nice change from regular chocolate chip! I made them with milk, white, and semi-sweet chips. I agree with a previous review that this is a more "sophisticated" cookie in flavor--though my toddler really enjoyed them too!
