Oatmeal Dried Cherry Cookies

These cookies are so darn yummy and ADDICTIVE!  Enjoy!

Ingredients:

  • 1 ½ cups all-purpose flour
  • 1 teaspoon ground cinnamon
  • ½ teaspoon salt
  • ½ teaspoon baking soda
  • ½ teaspoon baking powder
  • 1 cup unsalted butter, (2sticks) at room temperature
  • 1 cup dark brown sugar
  • ½ cup granulated sugar
  • 2 large eggs
  • 1 teaspoon pure vanilla extract
  • 2 cups old-fashioned rolled oats
  • 2 cups dried sour cherries
 Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Line baking sheets with parchment paper; set aside. In a medium bowl, whisk the flour, cinnamon, salt, baking soda and baking powder; set aside.
 In a bowl of an electric mixer fitted with paddle attachment, or using a hand mixer, beat the butter and sugars until light and fluffy, 1 to 2 minutes. Add the eggs and vanilla, and beat to incorporate.
Add flour mixture to butter mixture, beating on low speed to combine. Stir in the oats and dried cherries.
 Using a 2-ounce scoop, drop the dough onto prepared baking sheets, leaving 6 inches between cookies. Bake until edges are just turning brown, about 20 minutes. Cool 2 minutes on baking sheet, then remove to wire racks to cool completely.
