These are perfect to bake immediately, refrigerate for one to two days or freeze for up to a month. Do a few at a time when you can't resist. Yuuuum! Recipe from Ponder Cove Bed and Breakfast.
- Heat oven to 350 degrees. Sift together flour and baking soda and set aside. Cream butter and sugars until light and fluffy, 2 to 3 minutes. Add egg, and mix on high speed. Add vanilla extract. Add flour mixture a bit at a time until well combined. Add oatmeal, cherries, chocolate and toffee pieces. Divide dough into three equal portions, and roll into logs using plastic wrap, approximately 1 1/2 inches in diameter. To bake, cut logs into 3/4 inch pieces. Bake on parchment- lined baking sheet until golden brown 8-10 minutes. Remove from oven, and transfer to baking rack to cool.
Thank you Mrs. Cookie:<br/>I never had toffee. It is still an awesome recipe. Next time, I will double the cherries and eliminate the chocolate chips.
Wow, these cookies are really good. I used cherry flavored craisins and they were awesome. I pop them in the microwave for about 10 seconds and the chips melt a little bit, YUM!
Yummy cookies! Different and delicious! I only had 1/2 cup toffee pieces but even so the toffee gives these cookies a nice crunch and distinct buttery sweet flavor. The tartness of dried cherries is a nice compliment to bittersweet chocolate. I didn't shape into logs and chill, just formed drop cookies and baked right away which worked well. Thanks for sharing the recipe!
