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

These cookies are fantastic!!! I love the variety of the white chocolate, milk chocolate, and tart cherries! I didn't have semisweet chocolate chunks, so I just used semisweet chocolate chips. I cooked them for 12 minutes instead of 10 and they were perfect. The cookies were a big hit!!! I will be making them again!

Fabulous cookies! I was a little worried at first because the batter was very crumbly, but I just smooshed everything together and they turned out fine. Mine turned out a little soft in the middle, so I think I'll let the next batch cook a little while longer. Definitely a keeper.

This recipe is definately different. Don't expect normal chocolate cookies. The are heavy so expect to make smaller cookie drops that normal. Freezing does hold the shape. I combined cherries and cranberries and it tasted great.
