As I bit into this cookie, I had a bit of a silly revelation… It did not occur to me until that moment that this recipe was pretty much a yummy Oatmeal Raisin cookie, with cherries instead of raisins…
Then my mind filled with all kinds of yummy substitutions like cranberries and dried blueberries…
We found this recipe in Gooseberry Patch’s brand new- not yet in stores- cookbook, The Harvest Table…
By the way, have y’all entered the giveaway yet?!
Start out with 1 Cup of Butter in your mixing bowl.

Then add 2 Eggs…
And 1 t Vanilla
In a separate bowl, mix up your dry ingredients:

3/4 Cup All Purpose Flour

1 t Cinnamon… I am in LOVE with Penzey’s Cinnamon… Just sayin’

YES! Almost anything would be a good substitute for raisins, but especially cherries!. lol And of course the addition of walnuts would be a good thing – IMHO,of course. 🙂
