How to make it
- Preheat the oven to 350 degrees. Butter two cookie sheets.
- In a nonstick pan, toast the almonds over medium-low heat, stirring constantly for about 5 to 10 minutes, until they have just begun to turn brown and emit a nutty aroma. Turn out onto a plate to cool. Chop the chocolate bars into small chunks, no larger than large chocolate chips, and set aside.
- In a large bowl, combine cherries, chocolate chips and oats and set aside.
- Sift together flour, baking powder, baking soda and salt, and set aside.
- In a large mixing bowl, beat the butter until light and fluffy, about 4 minutes. Add sugars and beat the butter until creamy. Add the eggs and vanilla. Beat the mixture until well combined, about a minute. Add the dry ingredients to the mixture and beat at low speed until well-combined, less than a minute. Add chocolate chips, chopped chocolate, cherries and nuts. Using a sturdy wooden spoon, mix well by hand, until all the ingredients are thoroughly incorporated. Using a 1-tablespoon scoop, measure out cookies (about a dozen per sheet). Bake 12 to 14 minutes, or until the cookies have set and are slightly flattened and light brown. Cool on sheets 2 minutes, then transfer to racks to cool completely.
- Makes 6 dozen cookies.
