Maraschino Cherry Chocolate Chip Cookies
Happy New Year's Eve, everyone? Planning anything fun for the evening? It's quiet here, but I'm anticipating my New Year's Day Hoppin' Johns.
I ran across this recipe some time ago and thought it sounded pretty good. Dark chocolate chips and maraschino cherry, a natural combination.
MARASCHINIO CHERRY CHOCOLATE CHIP COOKIES (makes 3 to 3/12 dozen)
1/2 cup unsalted butter, room temperature
1/2 cup granulated sugar
1/2 cup light brown sugar
1 large egg
1/2 tsp vanilla extract
1 1/4 cup AP flour
1 tsp baking soda
1/4 tsp salt
1 cup dark chocolate chips
1/2 cup maraschino cherries, chopped
Mix the butter and sugars in a bowl, beat in the egg followed by the vanilla extract.
Mix the flour, baking soda, and salt in another bowl.
Mix the dry ingredients into the wet until they are just incorporated.
Mix in the chocolate and cherries.
Place the dough on a parchment paper or Silpat-lined cookie sheet one Tablespoon at a time and bake in a preheated 350F oven until lightly golden brown around the edges, about 8-10 minutes, let cool on sheet for 2 minutes and transfer to cooling rack to cool completely.
