Oatmeal Cherry Cookies

These are a very tasty drop cookie. These cookies come out much better when baked on parchment paper or on a silicon baking sheet.


1 cup butter, softened
2 cups brown sugar, packed
1 teaspoon salt
2 eggs
1 1/2 teaspoons vanilla
2 tablespoons milk
2 1/2 cups flour
1 tablespoon baking powder
1 1/2 teaspoons baking soda
1 1/2 cups rolled oats
1/2 pound tart dried cherries
Coarsely chopped toasted almonds


Beat together butter, brown sugar and salt together until mixture is creamy. Add eggs one at a time, beating well after each egg is added. Stir in milk. In another bowl, stir together flour, baking powder, and baking soda. Add flour mixture to creamed mixture, combining well. Stir in oats and cherries. Cover and refrigerate for a few hours. Drop chilled dough by tablespoonful about 3 inches apart onto parchment-lined baking sheet. Bake at 350 degrees for about 12 minutes, or just until cookies puff and are light golden brown.
