Cherry Pecan Chocolate Chip Cookies

These turned out really great, chewy, soft and delicious! This recipe makes a lot! We added some nuts to this recipe because, well, nuts are just fun and delicious in cookies!

Here's the original recipe: http://www.marthastewart.com/1130494/chewy-chocolate-chunk-cherry-cookies


Ingredients:

3 1/2 cups all-purpose flour
2 teaspoons baking soda
1 1/2 teaspoons salt
3 sticks unsalted butter, room temperature
2 cups packed light-brown sugar
1 cup granulated sugar
4 large eggs
2 teaspoons pure vanilla extract
12 ounces semisweet chocolate, coarsely chopped (2 1/2 cups)
8 ounces dried cherries (1 1/2 cups)
1 cup pecans or other nuts

Directions:

1. Preheat oven to 375 degrees.
2. Whisk together flour, baking soda, and salt. Beat butter and sugars until pale and fluffy. Add eggs, 1 at a time, beating well after each addition. Beat in vanilla, then flour mixture. Beat in chocolate and cherries. Add in nuts. Refrigerate dough for 1 hour.
3. Drop cookie dough with a tablespoon onto parchment-lined baking sheets, spacing about 3 inches apart. Bake until edges are golden, 12 to 14 minutes. Let cool on sheets set on wire racks for 10 minutes. Transfer cookies to racks; let cool completely.
