Chocolate Cherry Oatmeal Fancies

Chocolate Cherry Oatmeal Fancies



I have loved maraschino cherries ever since I was a kid.  Whenever our family would eat out at a restaurant, my sister and I would order Shirley Temple drinks which always came with a stemmed maraschino cherry as a garnish.

So a couple of years ago, I decided that I really wanted to have a recipe for cookies with maraschino cherries in them.  I went through a phase where I made lots of cookies, all of them with cherries in them, but most of the recipes I tried weren’t good enough.  In fact, this recipe for Chocolate Cherry Oatmeal Fancies is the only one I kept from my cherry cookie experiment.  And even this one didn’t have enough cherries in them for my liking.  So I just doubled the amount of cherries, and now I think the cookie/cherry ratio is just right.

Another good thing about these cookies is that they have chocolate chips in them.  Two kinds!  Dark chocolate and white chocolate.  They make for a great combination with the maraschino cherries.  I hope you like these as much as I do.  Give ‘em a try!
