Chocolate Cherry and White Chip Cookies
pure vanilla extract
bag of white chocolate chips
bag of dried cherries, cut in half
1In a mixing bowl, cream butter and sugar till fluffy. Add eggs, one at a time, beating well after each one. Beat in vanilla.
2In a separate bowl sift flour, cocoa, baking soda and salt. Gradually add to creamed mixture. Add in the white chocolate chips and the dried cherries. Mix.
3Cover and refrigerate for 1 hour. Using a small ice cream scoop, scoop out 1 inch balls and place them 2 inches apart on an un-greased cookie sheet.
4Bake at 350 degrees for 10 minutes or until the edges are firm. You may have to cook them for more or less time depending on the size of the cookies and your oven.
5Let cool on trays for a minute before moving to wire racks to cool completely.
6OPTIONS: Instead of the white chocolate chips and cherries, you can change it a bit and either add peanut butter chips or chopped Andees mints.
