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 is 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!

You can have these delicious cookies whipped up for a Valentine’s Day Party, For Santa Clause or for any old day – in NO TIME! I loved how easy they were to make!

  1. I love white chocolate and cherries together too. This cookie sounds wonderful, and looks so pretty. I am putting it on my “must make” list!

  2. These cookies look so good! I love the color too 🙂

  3. I can’t believe I’ve never thought of baking with maraschino cherries. They’re one of my top favorite guilty pleasure foods! Putting them in a cookie is genius and is happening sooner rather than later in my kitchen.

  4. We were both on the same wavelength! I made oatmeal, white chocolate and cherry cookies! Your look yummy!

  5. I absolutely agree with you – white chocolate and cherry go wonderful together. And I just looooooooooooove white chocolate.
    These cookies would not last long with me around 🙂

  6. Great recipe! Thanks for participating in the Dessert Challenge. Can’t wait to see what you create for us next month! ~Sheryl @ Lady Behind The Curtain~

  7. These cookies look amazing. I think my hubby would really love these. He loves cherries. These are going on my list to try. I hope I get to try them soon. Thanks for sharing 🙂

  8. These look so good. I have a jar of maraschino cherries sitting in my fridge just begging to be used. Thanks for sharing on Foodie Friends Friday and I hope you join us again next week. Pinning these.
