To be clear, these cookies are not cookies Graham made. Rather, these are cookies that his sweet sister makes a version of and I was determined to create a from-scratch version. These have less oatmeal than the originals, but that means you can sneak them to people that “don’t eat oatmeal cookies.”
Cream together 1/2 cup unsalted butter, 1/2 cup packed brown sugar, and 1/2 cup white sugar. Beat in 2 large eggs and 1 1/2 teaspoon vanilla. Stir in 1 cup flour, 1 cup old fashioned oats, 3/4 teaspoon baking soda, 1 teaspoon kosher salt, 1 1/4 cup dried tart cherries, and 1 cup dark chocolate morsels. If you like walnuts or macadamia nuts, throw some in too. If you’re related to Graham, don’t do that, it’s probably not safe.
This will, in fact, look like it’s mostly cherries and chocolate. Do not judge me.
Drop by tablespoons a few inches apart on silicone or parchment lined baking sheet. Bake 14-17 minutes at 350 degrees. Let cool then remove to cooling rack. Smack husband’s hand away when he tries to steal them while piping hot.
