Recipe by rebsue

I make cookies pretty often and I try to make them somewhat healthy based on the fact that I eat them regularly. This is a recipe my husband and I really enjoyed -- the idea came from White Chocolate Chip Cranberry Oatmeal Cookies -- but I changed quite a few things!

Wonderful tasting cookies, these! I particularly like the use of whole wheat in them, & also the combo of dark chocolate & cherries! Definitely a cookie I'd like to see on my finger food counter the next time I host one of my monthly groups! This time around, though, they went into a big cookie exchange that I helped organize for our mobile home park residents! Thanks for posting the recipe!
