Cherry Chocolate Chip Cookies

These are lovely chocolate chips cookies bursting with cherries with a slight orange twist. My family and I (mainly me) are eating a cookie per day for dessert. I’ve been seriously addicted to cookies ever since eating a lactation cookie daily after giving birth. These cookies are festive and especially nice to enjoy for the holidays! We had them for dessert for Thanksgiving! 😊

Time: 35 minutes
Yield: 2 dozen large cookies

Ingredients

  • 1 cup dried tart cherries
  • 2 cups orange juice
  • 1.75 cup or 3 ½ sticks of unsalted butter, at room temperature
  • 2 cups brown sugar
  • 3 large eggs
  • 2 tsp vanilla extract
  • 5 cups all-purpose flour
  • 2 tsp salt
  • 2 tsp baking soda
  • 1 cup chocolate chips

Instructions

  1. Boil cherries and orange juice in a pot and cook until most of the juice has evaporated. Set aside and let it completely cool.
  2. Preheat oven to 350°F with racks in the middle. Lay enough parchment paper to cover baking tray.
  3. In an electric mixing bowl, cream butter and sugar until completely blended. Add eggs and vanilla extract then mix until incorporated. It should look creamy.
  4. Add flour, salt, and baking soda and mix well until there are no more flour streaks. Gently stir in chocolate chips and boiled cherries.
  5. Gently make golf sized balls from the dough and spread out the dough so they’re not too close to each other on the baking tray.
  6. Bake the cookies for 13 minutes or until they’re a light golden color. Let them cool completely and enjoy!
