Total: 1 Hour, 20 Minutes


3/4 cup butter, softened
3/4 cup DOMINO Granulated Sugar
3/4 cup firmly packed DOMINO Light Brown Sugar
2 large eggs
1 teaspoon almond extract
2 1/4 cups all-purpose flour
1 teaspoon baking soda
3/4 teaspoon salt
1 (6-oz.) package dried cherries, coarsely chopped
1 (4-oz.) bittersweet chocolate baking bar, chopped
1 (4-oz.) white chocolate baking bar, chopped
1 cup chopped pistachios
Parchment paper


1. Preheat oven to 350°. Beat butter and sugars at medium speed with a heavy-duty electric stand mixer until creamy. Add eggs and almond extract, beating until blended.

2. Combine flour, baking soda, and salt in a small bowl; gradually add to butter mixture, beating just until blended. Stir in cherries and next 3 ingredients just until combined. Drop by tablespoonfuls onto parchment paper-lined baking sheets.

3. Bake at 350° for 10 to 14 minutes or to desired degree of doneness. Remove from baking sheets to wire racks, and cool completely (about 15 minutes).
