Cherry Chip Cookies

This is a holiday spin on the traditional
Toll House Chocolate Chip Cookie recipe.

You can use the semi-sweet chips,
but I prefer the white chocolate chips
for Christmas cookies.

You can also add 1 cup of chopped nuts.

Cherry Chip Cookies

2 1/4 cups flour
1 tsp. baking soda
1 tsp. salt
1 cup (2 sticks) softened butter
3/4 cup sugar
3/4 cup packed brown sugar
1 tsp. vanilla
2 large eggs
12 oz. pkg of white chocolate chips
16 oz. tub of candied red cherries

Preheat oven to 350-degrees

In a medium sized mixing bowl,
whisk together the flour, baking soda and salt.

In a large mixing bowl,
Cream together the butter, sugar
and brown sugar.

Beat in the eggs and vanilla.

Gradually beat in the flour mixture.

With a spoon,
stir in the white chocolate chips.

These candied cherries are available in your
grocery produce section during the holidays.

Chop half of the cherries in the tub
into fourths.

Cut the rest of the cherries in half and set aside.
This is STICKY!

Stir the chopped cherries into the dough.

Drop rounded tablespoons of
the dough onto an ungreased cookie sheet,
and bake for 9-11 minutes or until golden brown.

When they're warm from the oven,
press a half cherry into the center of
each cookie.

These look like Christmas to me,
and are MY favorite cookie
during the holidays!
