  • 1/2 cup White Sugar
  • 1/2 cup Brown Sugar
  • 1/2 Large Egg

  • 1/2 cup Dried Cherries
  • 1/2 cup Slivered Almonds Toasted
  • 1/2 cup White Chocolate Chips

Note

This recipe makes about 12-14 cookies. If you are impatient, you can bake these without refrigerating however it will slightly alter the taste and chewiness of the cookie, but it will still be a good cookie!

Directions

Step 1
(Optional) In a pan, toast the almonds for a few minutes. Be careful not to burn them. And set aside.
Step 2
Cream the softened butter, white sugar & brown sugar in a stand mixer with a paddle attachment or with a wooden spoon. Add the egg and the zest of one orange and mix until incorporated.
Step 3
In a separate bowl, sift the flour, baking soda & salt. Slowly add the dry ingredients to the wet ingredients and mix until incorporated. Stir in dried cherries, almonds & white chocolate chips. Cover in plastic wrap and refrigerate at least an hour or overnight.
Step 4
When ready to bake, preheat oven to 375 degrees F. Scoop 2-3 rounded tablespoons of dough and place on parchment lined baking sheets about 2-3 inches apart. Bake for 8 minutes until the edges are a light golden brown. Do not over bake. Cool and enjoy!
