Whisk eggs in bowl with vanilla,then add cherries and let sit for an hour or so.

Cream butter and sugars till well combined.

In a bowl sift flour, salt, baking soda, cinnamon, and ginger.

Add dry ingredients to creamed and mix.

Add egg mixture and stir in with a wooden spoon.

Lastly add the Oatmeal , coconut, and chocolate chips and stir (at this point I usually use my hands to mix)

Using a cookie scoop form the dough into balls and place on a cookie sheet, leaving a good two inches between.

Press balls down slightly and cook cookies for 12 minutes.

Cool on a rack and enjoy!!!


I always just do 6 cookies per sheet and one sheet at a time in the oven

I live for my silpat cookie sheets-no prepping pan and cleanup is a breeze. If you don’t have one,GET one 🙂
