There is nothing more relaxing than a hot cup of tea, a good book and a delicious cookie on a cold winter's afternoon. Add in a flurry of snow and the setting is perfect. This cookie recipe has a bit of a different twist than the traditional oatmeal chocolate chip version. It has tart dried cherries and healthy dark chocolate chips.
