  • 1/2 cup butter, softened
  • 1/2 cup brown sugar
  • 1/2 cup sugar
  • 1 egg
  • 1/2 tsp almond extract
  • 1/2 tsp vanilla extract
  • 1/2 tsp salt
  • 1 1/3 cup all-purpose flour
  • 1/2 tsp baking soda
  • 1 tsp cornstarch
  • 3/4 cup white chocolate chips
  • 1/2 cup dried cherries
  • 1/4 cup slivered almonds
  1. Beat butter until light and fluffy, about 1 minute. Add in brown sugar and white sugar and beat until well creamed. Beat in the egg, almond extract, vanilla extract, and salt. Once combined, set aside.
  2. In a separate bowl, mix together flour, baking soda, and cornstarch. Once combined, slowly incorporate the dry ingredients into the wet ingredients.
  3. Once combined, add in white chocolate chips, almonds, and cherries. Mix.
  4. Chill the dough in the fridge for at least 20 minutes. (Or, if you're impatient like me, scoop the dough onto a baking sheet, and pop into the freezer for five minutes and then bake).
  5. Preheat the oven to 350 degrees.
  6. Scoop dough into 2-inch Tbsp balls, place 2-inches apart on a cookie sheet.
  7. Bake for 14-15 minutes, or until slightly golden brown--this ensures they are soft and chewy!

  8. Allow to cool and enjoy!
