ThrowBack Thursday – White Chocolate Cherry Cookies

White Chocolate Cherry Cookies ~ Who Needs a Cape?

I posted this last February – for a Valentine’s Day treat…But quite honestly it’s one of the cookies that I will be making for Christmas this year – it’s perfect for Christmas!  So I decided it was worth Throwing Back to these yummy cookies!  And this year while I’m making them I’ll be using the cherries that the Mario Company sent to me – I have loved using them!  Give them a try!


White Chocolate and Cherries seem to belong together, or is that just me?  I love the combination to be honest.  And I love a different cookie.  Yes, chocolate chip or peanut butter are delicious, but sometimes you need something else.  So I did a little experimenting in the kitchen and I came up with these.  I hope you enjoy them – they didn’t last long in this house!
