Cherry Chip Cookies

When I was little, I had a neighbor named Mary.  She was a sweet older lady that was married to a name named "Mud."  Really his name was Clay but when he introduced himself to us, he told us his name was Mud.   They were the sweetest neighbors you could imagine and we were lucky to have grown up next to them. 

Mary used to bake us many things growing up.  The one thing that will forever remind me of her are Cherry Chip Cookies.   Hers were the best!   We would attempt to recreate them on occasion but always failed and ended up burning the cherry chips on the bottom of the cookie.    Thanks to silicone mats, I can now make these cookies without that issue!


1 Cup Butter (Room Temp.)
1/2 Cup Brown Sugar
1.5 Cups White Sugar
2 Eggs
2.5 tsp. Vanilla Extract
2.5 Cups Flour
1 tsp. Baking Soda
1 tsp. Baking Powder
1 Cup Cherry Chips


Preheat oven to 350 degrees.

First, cream together your sugars and butter with your mixer. 

Next, add the two eggs and vanilla extract.  Mix scraping down the sides.   Now add in your baking soda, baking powder, and flour while the mixer is on low.  Turn the speed up once incorporated and scrape down the sides. 

By hand, stir in your cherry chips. 

When putting these onto your pan, make sure to spread them out as they do spread a bit.  I found 6 fit on a larger cookie sheet just fine. 

Bake for 12-14 minutes.  They may look a tad bit soft in the middle but will harden up nicely once they cool.

  1. Yum. Cherry Chip is my favorite cake, I usually use the cake mix cookie recipes to turn that cake mix into Cherry Chip cookies but this sounds great. Where do you find Cherry Chips?
