Chocolate Cherry Cookies
from "Cooking Light"
Heart-healthy and delicious!
Makes 30 cookies ( each cookie = 3 points + )
⅓ c. all-purpose flour
⅓ c. whole wheat flour ( I use King Arthur's white whole wheat)
1-½ c. old-fashioned rolled oats
1 tsp. baking soda
½ tsp. salt
6 T. butter
¾ c. brown sugar, packed
1 c. dried cherries, chopped
1 tsp. vanilla
3 oz. bittersweet chocolate, chopped
Preheat oven to 350 and spray baking sheets with cooking spray.
Combine flours with next three ingredients ( through salt) in a large mixing bowl.
Melt butter in a saucepan. Remove from heat and add brown sugar, stirring until smooth. Add sugar mixture to flour mixture; beat until blended. Add cherries, vanilla and egg; beat until combined. Fold in chocolate. Drop dough by tablespoonfuls onto baking sheets. Bake for 12 minutes. Cool on pans 3 minutes or until almost firm. Remove to wire racks to cool completely.
