Dark Chocolate Cherry Chunk Cookies



Dark Chocolate Cherry Chunk Cookies


1/3 cup dried cherries or cranberries
3/4 cup unbleached flour
3/4 cup oat flour
1 teaspoon ground cinnamon
1/2 teaspoon baking soda
1/8 teaspoon fine sea salt
1/2 cup plus 1 tablespoon unsalted butter, softened
1/2 cup sucanat
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
1 cage-free organic large egg
4 ounces bittersweet chocolate, coarsley chopped
Preheat oven to 375°F.

Line 2 large baking sheets with parchment paper.

Soak cherries in enough hot water to cover until softened, about 10 minutes. Drain well.

Whisk together flours, cinnamon, baking soda, and salt. Stir in cherries.

Beat butter and sugar together in a large bowl with an electric mixer until light and fluffy. Beat in vanilla and egg until combined well. Add flour mixture and the chocolate and stir until just combined. Chill dough 20 minutes for flavors to develop.

Form dough into 26 (1-inch) balls and transfer to baking sheets. Flatten cookies slightly and bake in upper and lower thirds of oven until slightly puffed and golden, about 10 minutes.
