These are good cookies, they really are. I do think that I used too much butter in them (I used the larger amount of butter.) They just seem a bit too buttery, too sweet to me. I'm sure this is a personal preference, and that a lot of people, maybe even the majority of people will say that they are just right. They were very easy to make. I did substitute cashews for the pecans. I didn't make any other changes. Thank you for sharing this recipe with us.

  5. In a large bowl, with mixer on medium speed, cream butter and brown sugar.
  6. Add eggs, honey, cinnamon and vanilla, mix throughly.
  7. Add flour, oats and baking soda, mixing together on low speed.
  8. Stir in cherries, nuts and chocolate with a wooden spoon.
  9. Drop batter by rounded tablespoons on to two ungreased baking sheets, leave at least 2 inches between each cookie (they will spread).
  10. Bake at 350°F for about 10 to 12 minutes.
