- 1 cup unsalted butter (room temperature) shopping list
- 3/4 cup caramelized sugar* shopping list
- 3/4 cup powdered sugar (icing sugar) shopping list
- 2 eggs(room temperature) shopping list
- 1 teaspoon vanilla shopping list
- 1 teaspoon baking soda shopping list
- 1 teaspoon salt shopping list
- 2 3/4 cup All Purpose flour shopping list
- 12 ounces good white chocolate, chopped into small pieces shopping list
- 8 ounces dried cherries(the more tart the better) shopping list
How to make it
- Preheat oven to 375 F.
- Grease your cookie pans with butter(to make a more golden brown bottom). In a mixer, cream the butter for 3 minutes. Add both types of sugar and mix(on high) for another 3 minutes. Scrape down the bowl with a spatula.
- Add eggs one at a time, mixing 1 minute each. Scrape down the bowl again. Add vanilla and mix for one more minute on medium high.
- In a seperate bowl sift the flour, baking soda and salt together. With the mixer on slow speed, slowly add the flour mixture to the batter. Do not over mix. Take the bowl off the mixer and by hand mix in the white chocolate and cherries.
- Using small ice cream or cookie scoop, scoop out the dough and place onto the prepared cookie sheet.
- Bake for 10 minutes. They will not look done. Take them out anyway, they will continue to cook on the pan. Leave them on the pan for 5 minutes after taking them out of the oven. Then transfer to a cooling rack.
- *To make caramelized sugar for this recipe. Take a cookie sheet and line it with parchment paper. With the oven preheated to 375 F sprinkle 1 cup granulated sugar onto the middle of the pan. Bake for only about 5 minutes( you need to watch it the whole time because once it starts to caramelized it can quickly burn).
- Take out of oven and it cool completely. Once cooled, lift the blob of caramelized sugar and put into blender. Blend until the sugar is back to being super fine. Measure out 3/4 cup for the recipe. I usually make big batches of this and keep it around to use in other recipes.
