Chewy Chocolate Cherry Cookies

  • 1  cup all-purpose flour (about 4 1/2 ounces)
  • 1/3  cup unsweetened cocoa
  • 1/2  teaspoon baking powder
  • 1/4  teaspoon baking soda
  • 1/4  teaspoon salt
  • 1  cup sugar
  • 1/3  cup butter, softened
  • 1  teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 1  large egg
  • 2/3  cup dried tart cherries
  • 3  tablespoons semisweet chocolate chips
  • Cooking spray

  1. Preheat oven to 350°.
  2. Lightly spoon flour into a dry measuring cup; level with a knife. Combine flour, cocoa, baking powder, baking soda, and salt, stirring with a whisk. Place sugar and butter in a large bowl; beat with a mixer at high speed until well blended. Add vanilla and egg; beat well. With mixer on low speed, gradually add flour mixture. Beat just until combined. Fold in cherries and chocolate chips.
  3. Drop by tablespoonfuls 2 inches apart onto baking sheets coated with cooking spray. Bake at 350° for 12 minutes or just until set. Remove from oven; cool on pans 5 minutes. Remove from pans; cool completely on wire racks.
