Why I Love This Recipe

I got this recipe from my friend Heather. She tells me she picked up this recipe while living in Florida, and that it is actually Laura Bush's recipe.

Ingredients You'll Need

1 1/2 cups (3 sticks) butter, room temperature
1 cup sugar
1 1/2 cups light-brown sugar
3 eggs
1 tbsp vanilla
3 cups flour
1 tbsp baking powder
1 tsp salt
2 tsp cinnamon
3 cups quick oats (not old-fashioned)
2 cups chopped walnuts
1 1/2 packages (8 oz packages) chocolate chunks (3 cups)
2 cups coarsley chopped dried sour cherries


Preheat oven to 350. With electric mixer, cream butter and both sugars. Beat in eggs one at a time, then beat in vanilla. Add flour, baking powder, salt, cinnamon, and oats. Slowly beat until blended. Stir in walnuts, chocolate, and cherries. Drop by tablespoonfuls onto a cookie sheet covered with parchment paper. Bake at 350 for 12-15 minutes, until golden brown. Yield: Approximately 8 dozen cookies.
