  • Easy
  • cookies


  • 1 stick (1/2 cup) unsalted butter, at room-temperature
  • 1/2 cup brown sugar
  • 1/2 cup granulated sugar
  • 1 large egg
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 1 + 1/2 cups all-purpose flour
  • 1/2 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1/4 teaspoon kosher salt
  • 1/3 cup dried cherries
  • 1/2 cup toasted Diamond Slivered Almonds
  • 1/2 cup semi-sweet chocolate chunks

The Steps

  1. Preheat oven to 375 degrees F. Line a baking sheet with parchment paper or a silicone mat.
  2. In a small bowl, whisk together flour, baking soda, and salt. Set aside.
  3. In the bowl of a stand mixer fitted with the paddle attachment or large bowl using a hand mixer, cream butter and sugars until light and fluffy, about 2 minutes. Scrape down the sides of the bowl and add the egg and vanilla extract. Mix until thoroughly combined.
  4. Slowly mix in the dry ingredients in three batches, scraping down the sides of the bowl in between each addition, until just combined. Fold in the dried cherries, almonds, and chocolate chunks.
  5. Measure out 2-tablespoon size balls and place them on the prepared baking sheet 3-inches apart. Bake for 12-13 minutes, or until the edges of the cookies are a light golden brown, turning the pan halfway through for even browning. The center of each cookie will remain soft.
  6. Cool on the pans for 5 minutes before transferring them to a wire rack to cool completely. Store in an airtight container for up to 5 days.
