I adapted this recipe from Martha Stewart after making a mistake in the original recipe and finding the consensus was my "mistake" version was better than the original. I tweaked it a little, came up with these, and they are always a hit. They are great even with just the dried cherries as well, and are good with or without the walnuts. Feel free to add more or less of the white chocolate and walnuts (if using) according to your taste. The recipe halves (or doubles, etc.) easily. I also find these are better made in drier weather, as you get a light, slightly crispy outside, which humidity seems to soften. However, they still taste great. Note the number of servings changes depending on the size of the cookies.
