Cherry Oatmeal Cookies Recipe

I like to make these old-fashioned treats with raspberry chips, but cherry-flavored work well in a pinch to add color and sweetness. These cookies stack nicely for packing. —Betty Huddleston, Liberty, Indiana

"Oh my gosh, these are the best. I am a cookie-holic and these went to the top of my list. I doubled the amount of pecans (only had those on hand.) My family loves them in cookies. Did not change another thing and they were awesome. Hubbly loved them as well. Yes, will be making again often."

"WALMART & SAFEWAY CARRY CINNAMON CHIPS ALL YEAR. I PICK UP CHERRY CHIPS WHENEVER I FIND THEM - WALMART I THINK. I USE TO ORDER CINNAMON CHIP FROM AMAZON, UNTIL LAST YEAR WHEN I COULD GET LOCALLY."

"You can make almost any flavored chip by just adding flavoring to chips in a sealed baggie, shake a few times each day so the flavor is evenly distributed throughout the chips and you have flavored chips. This is especially great with a drop of two of mint flavoring when mint chocolate chips are needed and not available in the stores."

"I finally found cherry chips by going online at Amazon.com but at $11.00+ for 11 ounces, I found it impractical so used dried cherries instead and worked just fine."

"I make these with Hershey cinnamon chips, the only place I can find them is Meijer, but they are very good. Also if you are ever in an Amish store, they usually carry all flavors of baking chips."

"Hello, TOH? Comments for almost the past THREE YEARS are not about how good these cookies taste, but about where to find one of the ingredients. Unless someone at TOH can shed some light on this, why is this recipe even posted? Just sayin'."

"Just made these using dried cranberries instead of the cherry chips, as that's what I had in my cupboard, and they are absolutely delicious! Also, I didn't know if it mattered, but I used quick cooking oats and they worked just fine."
