Cherry Garcia Cookies Recipe:

•1 cup dried cherries

•1/4 teaspoon salt

•1/2 teaspoon baking soda

•1-1/2 cups flour

•1/2 cup (1 stick) butter, at room temperature

•1/2 cup granulated white sugar

•1/2 cup light brown sugar, (packed)

•1 egg

•1-1/2 teaspoons vanilla extract

•1/4 teaspoon almond extract

•3/4 cup white chocolate chips

•1/2 cup semi-sweet chocolate chips

•1/2 cup coarsely-chopped macadamia nuts (optional)


Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. Line cookie sheets with parchment paper or Silpat liners.

Place dried cherries in a bowl and cover with boiling water. Let sit 30 minutes to plump up. Drain well, pat dry, and coarsely chop.

Whisk together salt, baking soda, and flour in a small bowl. Set aside.

In a large bowl, cream together butter, white sugar, and brown sugar. Beat in egg, vanilla, and almond extract. Add flour mixture to butter mixture half at a time and mix until combined. Fold in cherries, white chocolate chips, semi-sweet chocolate chips, and macadamia nuts. Refrigerate cookie dough 30 to 45 minutes to firm up.

Drop dough by the tablespoon onto prepared baking sheets, placing cookies about 1-1/2 to 2 inches apart. Bake 12 to 14 minutes until lightly browned around the edges. Cool 10 minutes on cookie sheets before removing to racks to cool completely. Store in a covered container.

Yield: about 36 cookies
