I have a passion for baking cookies and have tried lots of different recipes. Often times the recipes result in flat crunchy cookies. This is what I have come up with for thicker chewier cookies. Always a favorite around the house!
Beat butter until creamy. Add sugars and beat until nice and fluffy.
Add eggs one at a time. Add vanilla mix until combined.
Add baking soda and baking powder, then salt, then flour.
Finally add chocolate chips and cherries. (I put 2 cups in the recipe but I eyeball it until the chocolate ratio is what I want)
Drop 1 inch balls of dough onto ungreased cookie sheet and bake 8 to 10 minutes depending on oven. Cookies should be golden brown around the edges. They will puff up and sink slightly, but they stay gooey and delicious!
