If you are in the audience of Good Things Utah Monday, October 4th- you are L.U.C.K.Y.
Not only are you in for a treat (being with the ladies for an hour)- but you will get some cherry chocolate cookies from 101 Gourmet Cookies for Everyone, AND a chance to win my book! You had better be ready for Wendy Paul and book trivia….
If you are tempted to bake these delicious treats, here’s the recipe:
12 oz. semi-sweet chocolate
1/2 cup butter
1/2 cup sugar
1/4 cup dark brown sugar
2 tbsp. cocoa
1/2 tsp. salt
1 tsp. baking powder
1 cup flour
1 1/2 cups dried cherries
Cut chocolate into small pieces. Melt butter and chocolate in the microwave 20 seconds at a time, stirring in between. Once melted and smooth, add sugars and stir to combine. Add eggs and stir again.
Whisk together cocoa, salt, baking powder, and flour. Add semi-sweet chocolate and cherries. Refrigerate dough 45 minutes. Scoop cold dough evenly onto baking sheet and bake at 350 degrees for 11-13 minutes. Do NOT overbake.
