12 DAYS OF CHRISTMAS GOODIES: White Chocolate Cherry Chunkies

Day 4 of 12 Days of Christmas Goodies

Here is a cookie I made last year to send off to the troops in Iraq. I just sent off my last two soldier boxes today! I love to bake and what better way to share a little joy with our men and women who work so hard to protect our country. I try and bake all year round with this great group called Operation Baking Gals. Check them out if you wish to get on board and bake for some soldiers next month. They LOVE receiving the homemade goodies, since they are so far away from home.

1 stick butter, softened
1 cup packed brown sugar
1 cup granulated sugar
2 large eggs
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
3 cups all-purpose flour
1 teaspoon baking soda
1/2 teaspoon salt
2 tablespoons milk
1 cup chopped macadamia nuts
1/2 cup candied cherries
1 1/2 cups white chocolate chunks 

Preheat oven to 375. In a medium bowl, with electric mixer, cream butter and sugars together until light and fluffy. Add eggs and vanilla and beat until just combined. Set aside.   Sift together flour, soda, and salt. Add milk to the butter mixture and then add the flour mixture. Mix until just combined. Batter should be stiff.  In another bowl, combine nuts, cherries, and white chocolate. Then add to batter, stirring only to blend. Drop by heaping tablespoons onto a greased cookie sheet, 2 inches apart. Bake for approximately 11 to 13 minutes. Cool on wire rack.
