Every so often I make a cookie that I really enjoy. This may suprise you, but
I'm not a real big sweet eater. While the boys are having dessert, I ususally
opt to make myself a large bowl of stove popped salted popcorn. Rather then eat
the cookie of the day.
However there are always acceptions. This cookie
is one of them. The flavor combination the tart (but sweet) dried cherries, and
smooth white chocolate chips was more then I could resist. The boys were a
little unsure of the cookie at first. I think it was the large pieces of dried
fruit in them :)
I left a few at home for them and took the rest to
dance practice. There, the girls were very happy to finish them off. One girl
has even been asking for the recipe since.
So today I present,
