Double chocolate chip cookies with white chocolate chips and dried cherries are proof that you can improve upon the every day chocolate chip cookie. This cookie is good any time of year but I especially like it as an easy holiday cookie exchange recipe. This recipe will be made again in February for Valentine’s Day in my kitchen.
Double chocolate chip cookies with dried cherries are a dressed up version of my favorite brownie cookie recipe. The additions are simple– white chocolate chips and dried cherries– and it makes this an entirely different cookie. I like the play of the sweet dried cherries with the bits of white chocolate.
During the summer I bake these dried berry cookies with white chocolate chips— red, white and blue theme– and along the same lines as a dressed up chocolate chip cookie.

I originally made these double chocolate chip cookies with dried cherries with an online cookie-loving group/ Our theme was chocolate with.berries so you can see how well the double chocolate cookies with dried cherries fit into those guidelines. Do you want to switch it up a bit more? Add nuts if you wish, a bit of salty crunch would be a nice addition here.
