White Chocolate Chip Cookies with Cherries and Cashews


These white chocolate chip cookies combine salty and sweet flavors for a treat that no one can resist. The additional tartness of the cherries puts these cookies over the edge. Jenna Weber shares her twist on an old favorite in a full post on the Fresh Tastes blog.

Yield: 2 dozen cookies


  • 2.5 cups all purpose flour
  • 1 teaspoon baking soda

  • 2 cups packed dark brown sugar
  • 2 eggs
  • 2 sticks butter, softened (2 sticks)
  • 1 bag white chocolate chips
  • ½ cup roughly chopped cashews
  • ½ cup dried cherries


  1. Whisk together the flour, baking soda and salt. Set aside.
  2. Cream together the butter and sugar. Add the eggs one at a time, beating after each one. Add the vanilla and mix gently to combine.
  3. Add the flour to the butter and mix. Carefully stir in the white chocolate chips, cashews and cherries.
  4. Bake at 350 for about twelve minutes, or until golden.
