I know, I know that we all did plenty of cookie baking during the holiday season, yet here I am with cookies for my first post of the new year. But I just can’t resist the appeal of freshly baked cookies any time of year!
Oatmeal cookies lend themselves well to seemingly endless variations, but these are a new favorite twist. These Cherry-White Chocolate Oatmeal Cookies are sweet, chewy, tart, and so very tasty. The tartness of the cherries and the sweetness of the white chocolate are perfect companions.
I opted to make these cookie on the big side. We’re talking three tablespoons of dough in each cookie. These are some serious cookies! A perfect solution if you find yourself missing all those holiday cookies.
Some blogging friends and I are teaming up this year to bring you a Cookie of the Month! This month’s theme is oatmeal. As I do love a good oatmeal cookie, I am very excited about this bunch of cookie recipes! Be sure to visit these blogs and see their cookie creations!

You got me a cherry! I love dried cherries and especially in cookies.
Strange thing, I didn’t do any baking for Christmas. I made oodles and oodles of goodies, but not one of them involved baking (unless you count oven caramel corn). I may need to remedy that…
Jennifer, these sound delicious!! The combination is perfect!
So happy to “meet” you and be doing the Cookie of the Month with you. Can’t wait to see what you make next month!
I love the addition of cherries in these cookies! It’s a wonderful variation of the classic oatmeal cookie.
I LOVE that you’re starting a cookie of the month – very fun! And these look amazing. I’m not a big fan of cherries, so I wonder if cranberries would be as good. Either way, they look super yummy 🙂
Oh yum! I can never pass up a big, fat, chewy cookie, but the combo of dried cherries and white chocolate sounds especially irresistible. Too bad no one’s figured out how to download cookies over the internet, because I totally need one of these bad boys to go with my afternoon coffee.
Cookie of the Month sounds like some great recipes for 2015. Can’t wait to make these!!
Dried cherries are a recent addiction of mine..I swear I’ve been putting them in everything, but not yet cookies! Must change that.
White chocolate and cherries make such a good combination! The texture of these cookies looks amazing. xo
Haven’t start to bake this year, would try this!
Made these cherry/white chocolate cookies.. delicious but a little dry… will try them again, maybe I messed up
Hi, Pauline. It’s always a good idea to check how you measure flour. Over-measuring flour is one of the most common causes of dry baked goods. You can find my tips here: How to Measure Flour
