Better than classic chocolate chip cookies, these goodies have a special chew from dried cherries.


  • 1/2 cups rolled oats
  • 2-1/2 cups all purpose flour
  • 1-1/2 teaspoons baking soda
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon ground cinnamon
  • 1 cup butter, softened
  • 3/4 cup firmly packed brown sugar
  • 1/2 cup granulated sugar
  • 2 teaspoons pure vanilla extract
  • 2 eggs
  • 2 cups semisweet chocolate chips
  • 1 cup dried cherries


  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. and cover two baking sheets with parchment paper.
  2. Place rolled oats in blender or food processor and process until finely ground.
  3. Combine ground oats, flour, baking soda, salt and cinnamon in a large bowl.
  4. In a second large bowl, beat butter, sugars and vanilla until creamy smooth. Beat in eggs one at a time and continue to beat until fluffy.
  5. Stir the flour mixture into the butter mixture. Add chocolate chips and dried cherries, stirring until combined.
  6. Place 1/4 cup portions of dough onto cookie sheets, placing them 2-1/2 inches apart.
  7. Bake 16 minutes or until lightly browned. Transfer to a wire rack to cool.
  8. Keep stored in an airtight container for best results.
