Cherry Chocolate Chip Cookies

Today's treat is cherry chocolate chip cookies, which happen to be my dad's specialty. Of course this is my spin on his fantastic recipe, they are slightly different, dad's are all white flour, a little flatter and have far more cherries. Both versions are deliciously different from your average CCC. Here's my take on Dad's famous CCCCs.

The Deets
1/2 Cup Margarine or Shortening
3/4 Cup Butter (1 1/2 Sticks)
3/4 Cup Sugar
1 Cup Brown Sugar
2 Eggs
2 tsp Pure Vanilla Extract
2 tsp Maraschino Cherry Juice
1 tsp baking Soda
1 tsp baking Powder
1 tsp Salt
2 Cups Flour
1 1/2 Cup Whole Wheat Flour
1 Bag Chocolate Chips
10-12 Maraschino Cherries Roughly Chopped
The How To
Cream Butter, Margarine, Sugar and Eggs
Add Vanilla, Cherry Juice, Baking Soda, Baking Powder, Salt and 2 Cups of Flour, Mix until smooth
Add Whole Wheat Flour and mix until smooth
Add Chocolate Chips and Chopped Maraschino Cherries and Mix until well incorporated
Roll into Balls for Baking
Bake @ 365 for 8-10 Minutes
