Chocolate Cherry Oatmeal Cookies

Move over oatmeal raisin, there's a new cookie contender. The beauty of oatmeal raisin cookies is the buttery, sugary cookies and the dotting of sweet raisins. My version uses chocolate and dried cherries, introducing a whole new flavor profile. Rich chocolate, tart cherry, paired with a buttery oat base, makes for an irresistible cookie.

Jacklin Altman
These cookies are chewy and soft, bursting with flavors of creamy, rich chocolate and tart cherries, making for a KILLER flavor combo. The base is a super soft oatmeal cookie, which could be adapted to be eaten plain, or with other tasty mix ins (nuts, dried fruits, etc).
