Oatmeal Cherry Chip Cookies

I can't even think of a catchy name for these. Any suggestions? I was toying around with recipes I found and ingredients I had on hand and came up with these. So yummy and fall like.

1 c butter or margarine (I used a stick of each)
1 c brown sugar
1/2 c sugar
2 eggs
1 tsp vanilla
1 1/2 c flour
2 tsp ground cinnamon
1 tsp baking soda
1/4 tsp salt
3 cups old fashioned oats
1/2 c dried tart cherries
1/2 c chocolate chips
(also, I would have added nuts if anyone else liked them...)

In a large bowl, cream butter and sugars until light and fluffy. Beat in eggs and vanilla. Add flour, cinnamon, baking soda and salt. Stir in oats, cherries and chips.

I used my large cookie scoop and it made about 24 big cookies. With this size cookie, it took about 12 minutes at 350 degrees.


  1. How about Cordial Oatmeal Cookies since chocolate covered cherries are sometimes called cordials?

  2. got to taste one of these today. It is definitely a recipe y'all will want to try!
