I’ve talked about my love for recipes with easy flavors. My household calls me the “Mayor of Vanilla-town” due to it.

As an illustration, I sometimes choose a properly executed sugar cookie over some double chocolate something-or-other full of gloopity-glop. In fact, I’m kidding right here… however you get my level.

However just a few weeks again, I noticed a cookie on-line that was an oatmeal-type cookie that had pistachios, chocolate, and dried cherries in it and it intrigued me.

Now, y’all know I’m not an enormous raisin fan, so oatmeal raisin cookies are normally not on the prime of my record. However I like dried cranberries and dried cherries and having by no means had a cookie with dried cherries, I knew I wished to strive them.

Being that the place promoting this cookie was greater than 500 miles from my home, and since our non-public jet was within the store for repairs, I knew I used to be by myself to create one thing comparable if I wished to style it. Jetting all the way down to strive it simply wasn’t within the playing cards. (In fact, I’m kidding concerning the jet, too!)

I knew I wished the cookie to have oatmeal taste, however not comprised solely of oats. Being the pecan-loving Southern boy I’m, I knew my favourite tree nut needed to make an look, too.

And I knew I wished them to be a pleasant stability of salty and candy – that’s my favourite taste combo.

Some testing and tweaking and an entire lot of cookie tasting later, I landed on this model that I’ve to confess I’m fairly dang pleased with.

Enjoying round with the ratio of flour to oatmeal and selecting fast cooking oats for a finer texture hit the mark for me and landed someplace between a chocolate chip cookie and an oatmeal cookie.

Choosing brown sugar gave me that deep molasses-y taste and the chewiness I wished.

Now what can I say about dried cherries, pecans, pistachios, and chocolate chips? Nicely, they’re scrumptious… and even higher collectively. A sprinkle of flake salt on the highest of every cookie earlier than it will get baked and the candy and salty taste combo was achieved!

In truth, these cookies have me rethinking this entire “easy flavors” factor. 😆

Beginning with butter that’s tender and funky however not room temperature will preserve cookies from spreading. The softer the butter, the faster it would soften within the oven. I like to recommend beginning with butter that’s been sitting on the counter for about 10 minutes.

When you’re utilizing a stand mixer, you should utilize butter straight out of the fridge as the ability of the stand mixer will get the butter pliable rapidly.

In case your butter will get too tender, chill the dough within the fridge for about half-hour to get the butter to agency again up.
