Cherry Chip Cookies

July 9, 2019Teresa

Cherry Chip Cookies are delightful. These luscious cookies start with a Cherry Chip Cake Mix. Toss in some fresh cherries and vanilla chips & you have a cookie that’s absolutely mouthwatering. Plus, this is a 5-ingredient recipe so it’s really pretty simple.

I received a 20-pound box of fresh, plump, desirable cherries from the Northwest Cherry Growers a couple of weeks ago. They asked me to blog about my experiences with their cherries again this year. I made ten desserts in all. This was the last one I made.

Cherries and vanilla chips work so wonderfully together. The vanilla chips add a lot more sugar to the recipe so these cookies are really rich and decadent. The convenience of a cake mix is also one of the reasons I like this recipe. The only time consuming thing is pitting the cherries. If you have a cherry pitter, then that obstacle is overcome as well.

I love cherry desserts and I have a ton of them on this blog. While everyone automatically thinks cobbler or pie, rarely do folks thing about cookies when using cherries. Even though most of my recipes use candied or maraschino cherries, I have several using fresh cherries as well.

Delight your family with these scrumptious cookies this summer. Fresh cherries will only be in season for another month or so. Enjoy every crumb. 🙂

Instructions
  1. Preheat oven to 350°.
  2. Combine cake mix, oil and eggs.
  3. Gently stir in vanilla chips and cherries.
  4. Spray cookie sheets with cooking spray.
  5. Roll cookies into balls and place on prepared baking sheets.
  6. Bake at 350° for 13-15 minutes or until done.
  7. Rotate cookie sheets every 6-7 minutes.
Recipe Notes

NOTE: Because I was baking three racks of cookies at once, my cookies took 18 minutes to make. I also rotated the trays every six minutes.

NOTE: These cookies must be rotated during baking.

NOTE: I found it easier to keep my hands moist while rolling cookie dough into balls.

NOTE: You must thoroughly dry the cherries before using in this recipe. Otherwise, there will be too much juice and the ingredient mixture will be off. Therefore, the cookies won’t hold their shape and run too much on the cookie sheet.
