Cherry season will soon be upon us again. I read that sentance and chuckle a bit as I look at the mini blizzard blowing outside. But I know that like years past I will have anywhere between 80 and 100 pounds of cherries that I will freeze and use for making things like Cherry Lemonade Jam. Baking is also big part of cherry season. Looking for a cherry recipe like cherry cake or these cherry vanilla chip cookies is only the start. I sometimes never know what I might make.

How Were the Cherry Vanilla Chip Cookies?

These were a big hit with the firemen. They were also a big hit here in the yurt. I made these cookies larger than I usually do. They are also softer than these type of cookies tend to be.

The vanilla flavor sings and marries well with the cherries and the chocolate chips. The fresh cherries were moist and sweet. I was really pleased with how this cookie came out. I hope you try this cherry recipe and enjoy it as much as I did. If you like cherry in your desserts be sure to try Cherry Chocolate Blondies, Cherry Pistachio Bundt Cake or a good old fashioned Cherry Pie.
