Servings: 2 dozen
- 1 cup flour
- 1/2 tsp baking soda
- 1/2 tsp salt
- 3/4 cup butter softened
- 1/2 cup granulated sugar
- 1/2 cup dark brown sugar packed
- 1 large egg

- 1/2 tsp almond extract
- 1 cup old fashioned oats
- 1 1/2 cups semi-sweet chocolate chips or chunks
- 1 1/2 cup tart dried cherries
- 1/2 cup pecans chopped
Sift baking soda, salt, and flour together in a medium bowl.
In an electric mixer, beat room temperature butter, granulated sugar, and brown sugar until smooth.
Beat in the egg and the vanilla and almond extract.
Turn the electric mixer to low and slowly add in the flour mixture.
Beat on low to medium, scraping down the sides and bottom of the bowl.
Add in the chocolate chips, oats and chopped pecans and mix on low until all of the ingredients are incorporated.
Using a cookie scooper, scoop a ball of cookie dough and place on a cookie sheet lined with parchment paper.
In a preheated 350 degree oven, bake the chocolate cherry chunk cookies for 12-14 minutes.
Let the cookies slightly cool on a cookie rack and serve warm and freeze the rest!
Take these cookies out when they are still a little doughy. They will continue to cook on the cookie sheet while they rest.
Freeze these cookies for a quick cookie snack! Eat them right out of the freezer!
