If you’re familiar with my blog, you already know that I have quite the sweet tooth. It’s no surprise that I decided to share a dessert recipe, specifically, cookies! Cookies are a great snack or dessert, not only because they are delicious, but also because they are portion-controlled… if you have willpower, of course.
I happen to love cherries. I prefer them fresh, but I enjoy them dried, as well. They are a great addition to any dish, adding a nice pop of flavor. When I first came across this recipe, I knew I had to make them! Sadly, it took me months to get around to it. Better late than never, because these cookies are pure bliss! Light and airy, these cookies boast a cake-like texture, with the white chocolate lends the cookies a slight vanilla flavor, which pairs perfectly with the slightly sweet, slight tart cherries. These cookies are a refreshing change from the classic chocolate chip cookie. Unique and delicious, these cookies will hit the spot!
In the bowl of an electric mixer combine your butter and sugar:
Cream together your ingredients over medium/high speed until light and fluffy:
Add your eggs, one at a time:
Mix until combined:
Then add your vanilla extract:
Then your cream:
Add sifted flour, baking soda, and salt and mix until dough comes together:
Then add your cherries:
And the white chocolate chips. Fold them into your batter and refrigerate your dough overnight:
Once the dough has chilled, use a cookie scoop to form dough balls.
Drop balls onto a cookie sheet lined with parchment paper:
Bake your cookies at 350 degrees for 8-10 minutes, or until cookies are cooked through.
Once done, remove from oven. Let cool. and… voila!
