Life is just a bowl of cherries... cherry choc chip cookies

Let's make this simple. I made chocolate chip cookies last night. We each ate one and I brought the rest to work. So - when we wanted chocolate chip cookies again tonight - and I didn't have extra dough hanging out in the fridge (PARTY FOUL!) - I thought i'd change it up a bit. I cracked open a jar of Trader Joe Morello cherries - chopped them and drained out some liquid, added a dash of almond extract and an extra 2 TBSP of flour to my favorite chocolate chip cookie recipe - and voila! A new cookie is born. Pretty fun - and very tasty.

Oh, nice combination in a cookie, cherries and chocolate are one of my favorite ingredients together. They look wonderful.

What a great combo for cookies! (I’ve missed commenting on your blog for a bit so it’s so good to have some time and catch up with all your cooking/baking! :) )
