Adapted from a Whole Foods recipe. These were pretty good, but a little on the soft side — almost too tender in my opinion. Not much crunch, but still a good cookie.
Chocolate Chip Dried Cherry Cookies
1 stick organic unsalted butter — softened
2/3 cup organic cane sugar — packed
1 tsp vanilla extract
2 large eggs
3/4 cup sifted organic unbleached white flour
1/4 cup sifted organic whole wheat pastry flour
1/2 tsp salt
1/2 tsp baking soda
1 cup semisweet chocolate chips
1 cup dried cherries — roughly chopped
1 cup pecans — roughly chopped
Preheat oven to 350°F.
Cream together butter and sugar, beating until light. Add vanilla and eggs. Continue to beat well. Sift together both flours, salt and baking soda, and add to butter mixture, beating again. Stir in chocolate chips, dried cherries and pecans. Refrigerate dough for 1 hour.
Drop by rounded tablespoonfuls onto cookie sheets that have been lined with parchment paper and sprayed with canola or olive oil spray. Bake cookies 15 to 20 minutes or until golden. Remove to wire racks to cool
