Jefferson County Recipe of the Day: Chewy Chocolate-Cherry Oatmeal Cookies

Chewy Chocolate-Cherry Oatmeal Cookies: the unique mixture of chocolate chips and cherries makes these cookies irresistible!


1 1/2 cups all-purpose flour
1 tsp baking soda
1 tsp ground cinnamon
1/2 tsp kosher salt
1/4 tsp ground nutmeg
2 sticks unsalted butter, at room temperature
1/2 cup granulated sugar
1/2 cup firmly packed brown sugar
2 large eggs
2 tsp pure vanilla extract
3 cups old-fashioned rolled oats
1 cup bittersweet chocolate chips
1 cup dried cherries


~Preheat oven to 350°.

~Line 2 baking sheets with parchment paper.

~In a bowl, whisk together the flour, baking soda, cinnamon, salt, and nutmeg.

~Using an electric mixer, beat the butter and sugars until light and fluffy, 2 to 3 minutes. Beat in the eggs, one at a time, then the vanilla. Reduce speed to low and gradually add the flour mixture, mixing until just combined.

~Using a large spoon, fold in the oats, chocolate chips, and cherries.

~Drop slightly rounded tablespoons of the dough onto the prepared baking sheets, spacing them 2 in. apart. Bake, rotating the sheets halfway through baking, until the cookies are golden brown around the edges, 12 to 14 minutes.

~Let cool on the sheets for 5 minutes before transferring to wire racks to cool completely.
