Oatmeal Cherry Cookies (Martha Stewart)

"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."

  • Add the eggs and vanilla and mix well.
  • Slowly add the flour mixture, mixing on low just until incorporated.
  • Stir in oats and cherries by hand.

  1. 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.
  2. 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.


I live in a small city in southwest Virginia. We have been here for 22 years and love being near the mountains. I have three kids that keep me busy 24/7. I love cooking for my husband, but am constantly battling the picky eating kids at mealtime. I originally joined when this site was called recipeZaar to put my recipes into meal menus to rotate on a regular basis. Hopefully, to take the brainwork out of food shopping, menu planning and preparation. The problem is that I have found so many new recipes I want to try here I am going to end up with 100 menus! I guess that isn't so bad, variety is a good thing.
