When I was little, I used to go to the grocery store with my mom. I have a terrible memory, but it was either Safeway, King Soopers, or maybe even both.
Anyway, when we passed the bakery, I often got to choose a cookie. The bakery ladies were so nice and would hand me my choice in a crisp paper wrapper. Do they still do that anywhere?
My favorite cookie was a sweet cherry chip cookie. It was just the right combination of crisp and chewy, and I loved the flavor. The fact that it was pink probably didn't hurt either!
Today's recipe is an attempt to recreate this delicious cookie from my childhood. It's so easy to make, and is absolutely delicious! Again- it has a crisp crust but a delightfully chewy center- just how I like my cookies!
These would be perfect to whip up for a Valentine's Day party, or just to enjoy with your family. My boys were raving over them!
PS- somehow the cookies don't look very pink in the pictures- but they are!
