Oatmeal Cookies with Chocolate Chunks, Cherries and Pecan




On Nook & Pantry blog I saw this cookie and decided to try it this morning. Since I was not going to go out to get dried cranberries or cherries, I used maraschino cherries instead . They tasted really good with them. There are two more cookies I wish to try over the next week or two so stay tuned.

Oatmeal Cookies with Chocolate Chunks, Cherries and Pecan

1/2 tsp. baking soda
1/2 tsp. baking powder
1/2 tsp. salt

Place butter in stand mixer and beat until smooth.
Add brown sugar and beat until well blended.

Mix this only until mixture comes together.

At this point I usually use a wooden spoon to combine.
