Double Chocolate Cookies

Becky Luigart-Stayner; Lydia DeGaris-Pursell
Yield 2 dozen cookies (serving size: 1 cookie)
"I borrowed this recipe from my mother-in-law and added the white chocolate chips and dried cherries. We think they are even better than the original. Freezing the dough before baking helps the cookies hold their shape in the oven. You can use dried cranberries if you prefer." --CL Reader
