Cherry White Chocolate Chip Cookies Recipe

Someone take these Cherry White Chocolate Chip Cookies away from me now! Today! We just can’t stay out of them!

There’s a lot to love about a cookie that’s much like a chocolate chip cookie but with a delicious, delicious twist: chopped up Maraschino Cherries and White Chocolate Chips. 

A cup of coffee goes very well with them to cut the sweetness. I prefer slightly less chips in general so next time I think I’ll add only a heaping cup of White Chocolate Chips instead of two full cups of them.

Mine turned out a bit flat which could be due to the weather or it could just be one of those days, ya know? Still, no one will care after a bite of these fantastic cherry cookies!
