When it comes to cookies, you just can’t beat a rich, chocolate chip cookie. I love them just about any way, so long as they are either soft or chewy. Crunchy chocolate chip cookies are not welcome in my house. And although I do love a chocolate chip cookie in it’s purest form, I just can’t help but add all kinds of delicious goodies to make them even more special, especially around the holidays. These are a version of our favorite chocolate chip cookie, the tropical chocolate chip cookie. For these I added dried cherries, used dark chocolate, and added walnuts instead of almonds. They are beyond amazing.
I made a double batch of dough for these cookies. Half of the dough went in the freezer for later use, and the other half I made 3 dozen cookies for the first annual Great Food Blogger Cookie Swap. It’s a super fun even hosted by my two amazing and talented food blogger friends, Julie of The Little Kitchen & Lindsay of Love and Olive Oil. In the event each person send 1 dozen cookies to 3 separate recipients, and receives 3 surprise cookies from 3 different bloggers.
