COOK TIME

In just one bite you get the chewy sweetness of dried cherries, the crunchy nuttiness of pistachios, and the decadent richness of white chocolate chips. Of course, there's also the chocolate cookie base to tie it all together. All in all our Chocolate-Cherry Cookies are amazing.

What You'll Need:
  • 1 (15-1/4-ounce) package devil's food cake mix
  • 1/4 cup water
  • 1 egg, lightly beaten
  • 1/4 cup butter, melted
  • 1 (5-ounce) package dried cherries, chopped
  • 2 cups white chocolate chips
  • 1/3 cup chopped pistachios
What To Do:
  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. Coat baking sheets with cooking spray.
     
  2. In a large bowl with an electric mixer, beat cake mix, water, egg, and butter until smooth. Fold in cherries, white chocolate chips, and pistachios. Drop by heaping teaspoonfuls 2-inches apart onto baking sheets.
     
  3. Bake 12 to 14 minutes, or until set. Remove to wire racks to cool.

Thanks for your comment. Don't forget to share!

Growing up my Godmother made cookies that tasted very similar to these, and I could never get enough of them. Since she always baked from the brain, without any recipe, I could never figure out how to get mine to taste like hers...until now. This recipe reminds me so much of her cookies that I will continue to make them for special occasions because just like me, my friends and family really like them. The cookies have everything I love white chocolate chips, pistachios, and cherries. It's the best combo every time.

I LOVED LOVED LOVED these cookies! I had no problem with dropping the dough onto the baking sheet. I did put my dried cherries into a hot water bowl before folding them in - this helps keep them from shriveling up. Anyway, I would definitely make these again. Everyone I shared with loved them too. :D

Expensive to make and not worth it. 2 cups of chips - way too much. Dough wouldn't hold chips together. Impossible to "drop" onto sheets, I put on disposable gloves and rolled dough into balls. Final deciding factor in the one star rating, very little flavor! Could not taste the cherries at all. Usually love Mr. Food recipes, but this one was a bust, won't be making these again.
