I couldn’t tell you the last time I whipped up a recipe in five minutes, barely glancing at the recipe, and it actually WORKED.
This was a very last-minute thing, because my sister needed a dessert to take to a church potluck, and I couldn’t believe how much I ended up loving them. I am somewhat ambivalent on many oatmeal cookies, but with the addition of a hint of almond extract (one of my secret ingredients), these cherry chocolate oatmeal cookies are a little like a Bakewell tart in cookie form, and I ain’t mad at them.
What’s great about this recipe is that it isn’t finicky. It takes ingredients you almost certainly have on-hand, the dough comes together in literally five minutes, and then it’s just a matter of waiting for it to chill for a bit, then voila…15 minutes of baking later you have soft, crispy, chewy gloriousness.
