As I bit into this cookie, I had a bit of a silly revelation… It did not occur to me until that moment that this recipe was pretty much a yummy Oatmeal Raisin cookie, with cherries instead of raisins…
Then my mind filled with all kinds of yummy substitutions like cranberries and dried blueberries…
We found this recipe in Gooseberry Patch’s brand new- not yet in stores- cookbook, The Harvest Table…
By the way, have y’all entered the giveaway yet?!
