Pistachio, Cherry, and Chocolate Chunk Cookies (Plus M&M Cookies!)


I made these lovely pistachio, cherry, and chocolate chunk cookies with the same cookie dough recipe that I have used many times before, and before…I love the combination of chewy and crispy textures that this dough gets when baked. I like throwing in different nuts or dried fruits and chocolates and it seems like all mixes work and are delicious. The pistachios and cherries made a great color palate, and a nice sweet, tart, and salty flavor combination.

It was the last day of the school year today, and one of the 7 year old boys that I work with melted me to pieces with his big puppy eyes and suckered me into making M&M Cookies (which aren’t vegan because M&Ms aren’t vegan…The first non-vegan dessert I’ve made in a long time!) so I just threw some of the M&Ms into the vegan dough I was making and they worked great, and were a big hit with the kids at school. They were very colorful and fun. The teachers liked them too, although they certainly enjoyed their “adult” cookies with the chocolate, nuts, and cherries as well!

    I just found your blog and wanted to tell you how tasty your cookies look! I’d like to try them, but unfortunately I’m not used to cup-measures – but I think there are websites that help in such cases. 😉
    Maybe we could swap recipes sometime? (Most of mine are not vegan, though, but I think that most non-vegan things are exchangeable, right?)

    Best wishes,
