Chocolate Covered Cherry Pecan Cookies

Chocolate Covered Cherry Pecan Cookies


*Spoon & Sweep method: Use a spoon to fill measuring cup with flour until required amount is obtained. Scooping measuring cup directly into flour bag will firmly pack flour resulting in too much flour required for recipe.


  1. Preheat oven to 350°F.  Line 2 baking sheets with a SilPat or parchment paper.
  2. In bowl of a stand mixer, beat butter with sugars, salt and vanilla, about 2 minutes.  Add in eggs, one at a time, scraping down bowl after each addition.
  3. In a separate bowl, whisk flour and baking soda.  Add to other ingredients on low speed, until just combined.  Stir in cherries, chocolate and pecans by hand.
  4. Portion out cookies onto baking sheets, roughly 6 cookies per sheet (about 1/4 cup).  Cookies will spread a bit, but not much.  Allow 1-2 inches between cookies.
  5. Bake for 15-18 minutes or until lightly browned around edges.  Remove from oven and cool for 2-3 minutes on pan, then remove to a cooling rack to cool completely.
