A little cherry and chocolate cookies...

I was excited when I saw 
what looked like and easy recipe
in the latest martha stewart magazine.. 
a perfect cookie recipe for Valentine's cookies..
(thank god I tried it before the day of!)
Cherry-chunk cookies.. 

for some reason the cookies 
came out extremely flat.. 
and burnt.. 
part because my oven just
started running extremely hot lately.. 
(please don't break oven!!)
but apparently other people were 
having problems with the recipe too, 
so I don't feel so bad.. 

I went to my old faithful cookie recipe
from this fun little baking book 
that has a deceiving cover.. 
looks like something you would never use.. 
but I love it!

and I just added the cherries and chocolate
and perfection.. 
A perfect Valentine's cookie.. 
except for the part where I bought
cherry flavored cranberries accidentally instead of cherries.. 
(that's what shopping while sick and with a toddler will do to you!)

Recipe for never-fail fluffy cookies.. 
from Nestle..

2 1/4 cups flour
1 teaspoon baking soda
1 teaspoon salt
1 cup butter (softened)
3/4 cup sugar
3/4 cup packed brown sugar
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
2 large eggs

375 degrees 
(or 350 if your oven is crazy!)
and 9 to 11 mins.. 

Happy Baking!
