I had a rough day at work today, and all I wanted throughout teaching stir crazy 8th graders were my dads oatmeal raisin cookies…but when I got home I realized I didn’t have raisins! GAH! Really universe?! I decided to wing it and came up with these cherry almond oatmeal cookies, and I have to say they really helped turn my day around!

1 cup unsalted butter (2 sticks)
1/2 cup granulated sugar
1/2 cup brown sugar
2 eggs
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
1 1/2 cup call purpose flour
1 teaspoon baking soda
1/2 teaspoon salt
2 1/2 cups old fashioned oats
1 cup sliced almonds
1 cup dried cherries

Pre heat oven to 350 degrees.

In the bowl of an electric mixer cream the butter and sugars until light and fluffy. Add the eggs and vanilla and mix until smooth, lower the mixer speed to gently incorporate the flour,baking soda and salt. Fold in the oats, almonds and cherries until just incorporated and your ready to roll!

Ready to roll dough that is! Take heaping tablespoons of cookie dough and roll into balls, placing on an ungreased cookie sheet about 2 inches apart. Bake in the center of the oven for 10-12 minutes or until the tops are just golden.
