1 cup butter, softened
3/4 cup sugar
3/4 cup packed brown sugar
1/4 tsp vanilla extract
2 1/4 cups flour
1 tsp baking soda
1/2 tsp salt
1 – 16 ounce package of white chocolate chips
12 ounces of maraschino cherries, drained & chopped
Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
In a bowl, combine the dry ingredients and mix well.
In your mixer or large bowl, cream the butter & sugars together. Scrape down the sides.
Add the eggs, one at a time, mixing well.
Then add the vanilla, mixing well.
Slowly add the flour mixture to the butter mixture. I add it in one heaping tablespoon at a time.
Once the flour & butter mixtures are thoroughly combined, (Don’t worry if it seems a little stiff, no matter how much you drain the cherries, when you chop them, you’ll be adding some liquid into the batter.) gently stir in the white chocolate & the cherries.
