  • site.
  • 2 3/4 cups all-purpose flour
  • 1 tsp. baking soda
  • 1/2 tsp. fine salt
  • 8 tablespoons (1 stick) unsalted
  • butter, softed*
  • 4 oz. (1/2 stick) cream cheese

  • 1 1/2 tsp. vanilla extract
  • 1 tsp. banana extract
  • 1 1/2 bananas purried
  • 1 cup dried cherries
  • 1 cup chopped walnuts
  • 1 dark chocolate bar
  • 1.Evenly position 2 racks in the
  • middle of the oven and preheat to
  • 375 degrees F. Line 2 baking sheets
  • with parchment paper or silicone
  • sheets. (If you only have 1 baking
  • sheet, let it cool completely
  • between batches.)
  • 2.Put the butter in a microwave safe
  • bowl, cover and microwave on medium
  • power until melted. (Alternatively
  • melt in a small saucepan.) Cool
  • slightly. Whisk the sugars, eggs,
  • butter, vanilla and banana extract
  • in a large bowl until smooth. Whisk
  • the flour, baking soda and salt in
  • another bowl. Stir the dry
  • ingredients into the wet ingredients
  • with a wooden spoon; take care not
  • to over mix. Stir in the cherries
  • and walnuts.
  • 3.Scoop heaping tablespoons of the
  • dough onto the prepared pans. Wet
  • hands slightly and roll the dough
  • into balls. Space the cookies about
  • 2-inches apart on the pans. Bake,
  • until golden, but still soft in the
  • center, 12 to 16 minutes, depending
  • on how chewy or crunchy you like
  • your cookies. Transfer hot cookies
  • with a spatula to a rack to cool.
  • 4.Chop chocolate bar into pieces;
  • Place chocolate pieces into a
  • medium bowl,cover. Heat on high in
  • microwave for 30 to 45(depending on
  • the microwave). Stir until chocolate
  • is smooth.
  • 5.Dip cookie half way into the
  • melted chocolate, and place the
  • cookies back onto the wire rack. Let
  • cool and Serve.
  • *If you have no choice but to use
  • salted butter in a recipe, the rule
