I’ve been a cookie making monster this year. I don’t know what’s gotten into me. I usually don’t like making cookies. I’ve had so many great ideas for cookies this year, I just couldn’t help myself. I made Mint Chocolate Chip Walnut Cookies, Old Fashion Tea Cakes, and Chocolate Peppermint Chip Cookies. I packaged them together for friends and neighbors for holiday happys. I, also, made this White Chocolate Chip Cherry Oatmeal Cookie Recipe for the packages. I made them about an hour before a Christmas party we were going to. No, I wasn’t making it for the party, I just had the urge to make them!
I saw this bag of dried cherries at the store and couldn’t wait a minute longer to make something with them. These White Chocolate Chip Cherry Oatmeal Cookies is what I came up with.
Actually, it was perfect timing too. I received an invitation to join the Holiday Cookie Collection and Giveaway not long after I made these cookies. Below you’ll find all the bloggers participating in the cookie collection as well as the Target Gift Card entry form. I hope you’ll scroll down and enter!
