I bought dried sour cherries last week, absolutely delightful combination of sour and sweet.Yum. I picked the biggest container on the shelf, very good choice indeed, I already ate a good third of them, just snacking. Don’t tell anyone, okay?
Some of my favorite flavors are combined in these cookies.
CHOCOLATE ~ CHERRY ~ COCONUT
1 cup whole wheat pastry flour
1/4 cup all purpose flour
3/4 cup unsweetened Dutch-process cocoa powder
3/4 teaspoon baking soda
Scant 1/2 teaspoon salt
1 1/2 sticks unsalted butter, softened
1 1/2 cups packed light brown sugar
2 large eggs
3 1/2 oz fine-quality milk chocolate, cut into 1/2-inch chunks or you can also use chocolate chips
1cup shredded sweetened coconut
1 cup dried sour cherries
Preheat oven to 375° F
Whisk together flour, cocoa powder, baking soda, and salt in a small bowl.
Beat together butter and brown sugar with an electric mixer at medium-high speed until pale and fluffy, then add eggs 1 at a time, beating until combined well. Reduce speed to low and add flour mixture, mixing until just combined. Add chocolate chunks,coconut, and cherries and mix until just incorporated.
Using a small cookie scoop drop one full scoop onto the baking sheet lined with parchment paper, approximately 2 inches apart between cookies.
With dampened fingers, flatten cookies slightly.
Bake at 385F, rotating sheets in halfway through baking, until puffed and set, 12 to 14 minutes. Transfer cookies to a rack to cool.
