I don’t usually make cookies, I like to eat them, but making them usually doesn’t interest me.  So I really don’t know where these came from, I guess they were just meant to be.  The other day I was looking through my pantry and found a bag of white chocolate chips.  They were screaming at me, “make something”, but what?  As I was looking at the cookie recipe on the bag, it came to me.  I also had dried cherries and slivered almonds, what a perfect combo for a cookie!  The dough is the basic recipe on the bag, but I changed up the mix-ins and I have to say….these cookies are heavenly!!  They are sweet and crunchy and chewy, all in one cookie!  I may have to put cookies on my baking rotation.
