With this dessert recipe, you get the crisp edges and chewy centers of a classic oatmeal cookie, but with the added bonus of dried cherries to make these treats even more memorable.
In a large mixing bowl, beat butter with an electric mixer on medium to high speed for 30 seconds. Add brown sugar, granulated sugar, baking powder, cinnamon, salt and baking soda. Beat until combined, scraping sides of bowl occasionally. Beat in eggs and vanilla until combined. Beat in as much of the flour as you can with the mixer. Stir in the remaining flour. Stir in oats and dried cherries.
Drop the dough by rounded teaspoons 2 inches apart onto ungreased cookie sheets. Bake in a 350 degree F. oven about 12 minutes or until the edges are lightly browned. Cool on cookie sheets for 1 minute. Transfer to wire racks and let cool.
