Welcome to Simple Fare, Fairly Simple. This is a place for me to post recipes of all kinds...along with other miscellaneous fodder from my so-called life here in the south. Who knows what you will find here. Could be anything from my husband...known as IT Guy...to my kids and beautiful grandbabies that are growing up way too fast right before my eyes. But...mostly this will be a place for food. I hope you'll see something you like and if you decide to try something from the list...leave me a comment and let me know!

White Chocolate Cherry Chunkies

Cookie # 28 is:

White Chocolate Cherry Chunkies

Okay, okay....I know I've posted this recipe before but that was WAY back in August so I figured it might be time for a rerun. Besides, this recipe is SO good, it's worth repeating. If you didn't try it THEN...you must try it NOW!

White Chocolate Cherry Chunkies

Preheat oven to 350 degrees
Line 2 baking pans with parchment paper

¾ cup sugar
¾ cup brown sugar
1 cup (2 sticks) butter, softened
2 eggs
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
1 teaspoon salt
1 teaspoon baking soda
2 ¼ cups flour
1 14-ounce jar maraschino cherries, drained, rinsed, chopped and dried
1 cup macadamia nuts, coarse chopped
1 14-ounce bag white chocolate chips

Cream together sugars and butter until fluffy. Add vanilla and eggs and beat well. Add salt, baking soda and flour then stir. Add cherries, nuts and white chocolate. Stir to mix. Drop by teaspoonfuls onto greased or papered cookie sheets. Bake for 12 minutes until lightly golden. Makes about 2 dozen cookies.

Here's the goods to get going....

Make sure you drain and chop the 
cherries well. Otherwise your dough will be too wet.

Mix up the dough...

...plop onto the cookie sheet.

Bake 'em up!
