When you start going through your old issues of Bon Appetit, expect major delays and drooling…
SWEETTABLESCAPES did just that a few days ago while flipping through inspiring page after inspiring page. Our focus, of course, was on all things sweet, and boy! did we have fun.
And now, the real fun begins with testing these recipes.
This one happens to be another quick food processor/one bowl process which you’ve got to love!!
Chocolate-Chip Oatmeal Cookies with Dried Cherries
- 1 cup (2 sticks) unsalted butter, room temperature
- 1 cup (packed) golden brown sugar
- 1/2 cup sugar
- 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
- 2 large eggs
- 2 cups old-fashioned oats
- 1 1/2 cups all purpose flour
- 1 teaspoon baking soda
- 1 teaspoon salt
- 1 1/4 cups dried tart cherries (6 ounces)
- 1 1/4 cups semisweet chocolate chips
Position 1 rack in bottom third and 1 rack in top third of oven; preheat to 375°F. Line 2 large baking sheets with parchment paper. Blend first 4 ingredients in processor 30 seconds. Add eggs; process to blend. Add next 4 ingredients. Using on/off turns, process until oats are coarsely chopped and mixture is blended. Transfer to large bowl. Mix in cherries and chocolate chips.
Spoon batter by rounded tablespoonfuls onto prepared baking sheets, spacing 2 inches apart (cookies will spread). Bake until tops of cookies are golden brown, rotating baking sheets after 7 minutes, about 14 minutes total. Transfer cookies to rack; let cool. Repeat with remaining batter.
