Dried Cherry and White Chocolate Chip Cookies

Every so often I make a cookie that I really enjoy. This may surprise you, but I'm not a real big sweet eater. While the boys are having dessert, I usually opt to make myself a large bowl of stove popped salted popcorn. Rather then eat the cookie of the day.

However there are always exceptions. 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, Dried Cherry and White Chocolate Chip Cookies.
