Cherry Melt-In-Your-Mouth Cookies really do just dissolve in your mouth! These amazing treats are a super delicious way to enjoy fresh cherries. The cookie itself has a delightfully soft–almost shortbread type consistency. The cherries make the cookies almost irresistible.
Back at the end of June, I received a 20-pound box of sweet, dark cherries from the Northwest Cherry Growers. While I received no monetary compensation, they were interested in me using their cherries in a recipe and posting about my experience. Well, the cherries were plump, juicy and quite some of the best cherries we’ve ever eaten. We enjoyed the cherries plain, but they were certainly luscious dressed up in cobblers, cakes, cookies and bars. I made not one, but ten different desserts with all those cherries. (My fingers were stained with cherry juice for almost two weeks!)
For this recipe, I started with another favorite recipe: Peach Melt-In-Your-Mouth Cookies. Instead of fresh peaches, I used fresh cherries. The results were entirely predictable. They were A-M-A-Z-I-N-G!! My favorite cherry dessert has always been Cherry Pie. But I have to admit, these drool-worthy cookies give Cherry Pie a run for their money! We loved them.
If you’re looking for a fantastic way to use fresh cherries, Cherry Melt-In-Your-Mouth Cookies have to be on your list. These cookies will crush any sweet tooth craving you’re having. They’ll also make you an instant hit with your family and friends when you share a batch. 🙂
Cherry Melt-In-Your-Mouth Cookies really do seem to just dissolve in your mouth.
These cookies are heavenly.
I could have eaten my weight in these cookies. Ha!
Here’s what I did.
I used these ingredients.
Place softened butter in a mixing bowl. Add sugar, powdered sugar, egg, cream of tartar, baking soda and salt.
Cream with an electric mixer until smooth.
Add UNBLEACHED all-purpose flour. Bleached flour toughens baked goods. Add diced, pitted cherries.
Stir ingredients together with a wooden spoon.
Using a one-quarter cup scoop, place dough onto greased cookie sheets.
Bake at 350 about 18-20 minutes or until done. If you make smaller cookies, they may bake more quickly.
Every bite of these Cherry Melt-In-Your-Mouth Cookies will have you drooling.
