pistachio, cherry, chocolate chip cookies

This simple recipe turned out to be one of my favorites. I enjoyed some wine while making them, so I can assure you that this is a fast, easy recipe!


2 sticks unsalted butter, at room temperature
1 cup granulated sugar
2/3 cups dark brown sugar
2 large eggs
2 1/2 teaspoons pure vanilla extract
2 1/3 cups all-purpose flour
1 1/2 teaspoons baking soda
1 teaspoon salt
1 cup semi-sweet chocolate chips
1 cup white chocolate chips
3/4 cup dried cherries
1 cup finely chopped pistachios

Preheat the oven to 375 F.

In a large bowl, beat butter and both sugars. Then beat in the eggs and vanilla extract until smooth. Mix flour, baking soda, and salt in a small bowl and add to the large bowl, and beat until just combined. Stir in the chocolate chips, cherries, and pistachios.Drop 2 tablespoons of cookie dough 2 inches apart (they will spread).Bake cookies for 13-15 minutes, or until firm and golden brown around the edges. Transfer to a rack and cool for 15 minutes.
