  • 1 tsp pure vanilla
  • 4½ ounces unbleached all-purpose flour (1 cup)

  • 3 ounces dried tart cherries (1/2 cup)
  • 3 ounces dried blueberries (1/2 cup)
  • 4 ounces white chocolate chunks (3/4 cup)

  5. Stir in Oats just until blended.
  6. Add White chocolate, blueberries, and cherries. (Batter will quite thick)
  7. Portion cookies using a small ice cream scoop or use 2 TBL for each cookie onto a silpat or parchment lined cookie sheet.
  8. Bake 13-15 minutes at 350 degrees.

I use dried blueberries and sour cherries for this recipe. You can substitute dried cranberries for the cherries. I have used fresh blueberries, just be careful to stir in with a spoon or use your hands to avoid crushing the fruit.

I love chewy oatmeal cookies with a crispy edge. If you prefer a softer cookie,adjust your baking time by a couple of minutes less.
