It's the Most Wonderful Time of the Year!

Chocolate Chip Cherry Cookies! Yes, friends they are just as amazing as they sound! If you LOVE Maraschino cherries like I do, you'll love these babies too!

I made one batch and rolled the rest in wax paper in a roll put it in a freezer bag and popped it in the freezer so that a little closer to the holidays I can slice and bake more!

Windows Vista on the new laptop is acting funny. I can be typing and it'll randomly jump to another place... so if there are weirdly misspelled words, that's why, lol.

Woo hoo Holiday baking!


Recipe:
I don't use semi-sweet chips though, I use the ghiradelli milk chocolate chips and I added the cherry stuff to the recipe which is just ridiculously simple. lol. INGREDIENTS
1 cup butter, softened
1 cup white sugar
1 cup packed brown sugar
2 eggs
2 teaspoons vanilla extract
3 cups all-purpose flour
1 teaspoon baking soda
2 teaspoons hot water
1/2 teaspoon salt
2 cups semisweet chocolate chips
1 large jar Maraschino cherries
DIRECTIONS
Preheat oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C).
Cream together the butter, white sugar, and brown sugar until smooth. Beat in the eggs one at a time, then stir in the vanilla. Dissolve baking soda in hot water. Add to batter along with salt. Stir in flour, chocolate chips. Drain maraschino cherries and fold into dough. Drop by large spoonfuls onto ungreased pans.
Bake for about 10 minutes in the preheated oven, or until edges are nicely browned.
