Chocolate Cherry Oatmeal Cookies

1 cup (2 sticks) butter, softened
1 cup packed fresh brown sugar
1/2 cup granulated sugar
2 eggs
1 Tablespoon real vanilla extract
1 Tablespoon white vinegar
½ teaspoon salt
1 teaspoon baking soda
½ teaspoon baking powder
2 cups all purpose flour
3 cups old fashioned oatmeal
1 cup dried tart cherries, chopped
1 (6.8 OZ) bar of your favorite milk or dark chocolate, chopped

Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Line cookie sheets with parchment paper.

Using a mixer cream together butter, brown sugar, granulated sugar, eggs, vanilla, white vinegar and salt. Once combined and fluffy add baking soda and baking powder and mix briefly. Add Flour and mix until just combined. Add Oatmeal and mix briefly. Add cherries and chocolate and mix until incorporated.

Using a standard size 50 cookie scoop, scoop dough onto parchment about 2 inches apart. Bake for about 10 minutes or until browned around the edges. Let rest on the cookie sheet for about 3 minutes before removing to a cooling rack to finish cooling.

Note: If cherries are too dry soak them in some boiling water for a few minutes and strain before using.

Makes approximately 64 cookies.
