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.
I originally made these double chocolate chip cookies with dried cherries with an online cookie-loving group, the #CreativeCookieExchange. 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.
