John and I just returned from a holiday incredible. One of the most exciting part was that the hotel offers dishes of fresh cookies every day at 4.00 some clock! I ran into the lobby, looking frantic and incredibly sad if everyone had gone by the time I arrived. But the few times I was lucky, I chose the cookies had an impressive catch Cherry Chocolate Chip Cookie. They were so good and so is a possible interesting combination. The cookies were the chips and cherries bite all with a little of each load.
When I got home, I knew I wanted to do, so I used a new cookie recipe and just throw in some dried cherries. I milk chocolate instead of semi-sweet, but you can use either. This was also my first time making chocolate chip cookies with melted butter, it was interesting. The cookies were nice and big, firm and soft in the center. A real winner. I have not enough fruit and chocolate, but I can change the recipe below, so if you do enough. Definitely worth a try if you want a new cookie recipe!

1 3 / 4 c flour
2.1 teaspoon baking powder
14 tablespoons unsalted butter (4.3 sticks)
2.1 cup white sugar
4.3 c brown sugar
1 teaspoon salt
2 teaspoons vanilla sugar
1 large egg
1 large egg yolk
1 1 / 4 c milk chocolate chips
2:01 cup dried cherries
Preheat oven to 375 and line two baking sheets with parchment paper or silicone baking mats. Sift or mix flour and baking powder in medium bowl.
10 tablespoons of butter in a skillet over medium high medium set. Let melt the butter for 2 minutes, and begin to turn around the pan so golden. Keep moving so that the butter does not burn. Browning should be about three minutes and you know it works, if it smells nutty and has a dark golden brown color. Remove pan from heat and use a spatula heatsafe butter in a large bowl mix heatsafe transfer. Add the remaining 4 tablespoons cold butter into the melted butter, and stir gently until melted.
Add white sugar, brown sugar, vanilla sugar and salt, butter and whisk the ingredients together. Add egg and egg yolk and beat again until mixture is smooth, 30 seconds. Let stand for 3 minutes, then whisk for 30 seconds. Do this twice more, the end result should be thick and shiny.
Add the flour mixture and mix well, about 1 minute. Gently stir in chocolate chips and cherries. The dough is soft.
Pour 1 tablespoon of dough at a time on a baking sheet. Place cookies 2 inches on the already prepared baking sheet and bake one tray at a time when 10 to 14 minutes on the middle rack of the oven. Rotate the baking sheet to check after 5 minutes and the cookies at 10 and you want to be brown and set at the edges, but swollen in the middle. (My oven was perfect cookies in 12 minutes.)
Let the pan for 1-2 minutes, allow to cool completely on a wire rack cool.
