Oatmeal Cherry Cookies (Martha Stewart)

Total Time
Prep 20 mins

I found these on Martha's website. They are a nice alternative for those that aren't crazy about raisin oatmeal cookies, like me. My kids liked them. I increased the cherries by 1/2 cup from the original recipe just to my taste.

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Heat oven to 350°F Use a silpat or parchment paper on your cookie sheets for best results.
  2. Whisk flour, cinnamon, baking soda, nutmeg and salt in a bowl.
  3. Cream butter,sugar and honey in a mixer until creamy.
  4. Add the eggs and vanilla and mix well.
  5. Slowly add the flour mixture, mixing on low just until incorporated.
  6. Stir in oats and cherries by hand.
  7. Scoop tablespoon sized drops onto a cookie sheet. Bake 10 minutes. Watch very closely the last 2 minutes, they go from done to over done very quickly.
  8. Allow to cool for a few minutes on the cookie sheet before moving to a cooling rack.

I made these today and found them to be undercooked so raised the heat and cooked a few minutes longer. These are very different from the Martha Stewart recipe-8 ingredients are different quantities or omitted. I'll try that one next time as these had difficulty holding together even when cool. still taste very good.

Had these at a party - OMG amazing! They are so good I knew I had to add the recipe to my cookbook. I'm curious if anyone's frozen them? I think they'd do well.
