Recipe Details


We love traditional chocolate chip cookies, but there's something about the combination of buttery cookie dough and white chocolate that we just can't get enough of. Here, we add pecans for crunch and dried cherries for tart balance, then bake until soft and chewy. Best enjoyed warm, with a glass of milk or mug of tea.
