Cherry Chocolate Chip Cookies

Who else likes the combination of cherries and chocolate chips? I first made these cookies with oatmeal and they were very good. This time I used walnuts instead . The cookies were loved and devoured at a New Years Davy dinner party. Here is the recipe...

1 c. butter softened
½ c. white sugar
1 c brown sugar
2 eggs, room temperature
1½  c. all-purpose white flour
1/2 c. whole wheat pastry flour
1 Tablespoons unsweetened cocoa powder
1  teaspoon baking soda
1 teaspoon salt
½ teaspoon vanilla extract
2 c. semi sweet chocolate chips
1 c. Belgium milk chocolate chopped into chunks
1 c. dried cherries
1½ c. chopped walnuts

Cream butter. Add both sugars and cream until light and fluffy. Add egg.
Sift flour with soda and salt and cocoa and add to mixture.
Stir in vanilla, chocolate chips, cherries and nuts.
Don’t over mix.

Drop batter by teaspoonfuls onto cookie sheet .
Bake at 375 degrees for 10 minutes or until lightly browned.
