As promised, here’s a cookie recipe from Jamie Roster, who happens to co-own with her husband The Cherry Stop, in Traverse City, Michigan, better known as the tart cherry capital of the U.S.



1 cup butter, softened

1 cup brown sugar

1/2 cup sugar

2 eggs

1 teaspoon vanilla

1 1/2 cups flour

1 teaspoon baking powder

1/2 teaspoon salt

2 cups, quick cooking oatmeal

1 1/2 cups dried tart cherries

1 cup semi-sweet chocolate chips


  1. Preheat the oven to 350.
  2. Cream the butter and sugars together. Whip in the eggs and vanilla.
  3. In a separate bowl mix together the flour, baking powder, salt and oats.
  4. Mix the dry ingredients in with the wet. Stir in the cherries and chocolate chips.
  5. Use a tablespoon to drop dough balls onto an ungreased cookie sheet. Bake for 10-12 minutes.
  6. Makes 4 dozen cookies.
