White Chocolate Chip Cookies With Maraschino Cherries Recipe
1/2 cup salted butter, softened
1/2 cup granulated sugar
1/2 cup brown sugar
1 tsp vanilla
1 tsp milk
1/2 tsp baking soda
1 1/2 cup flour
3/4 cup white chocolate chips
1/2 cup maraschino cherries, chopped (roughly 16 cherries)
Before you start making the white chocolate chip cookes, you will want to pre-heat oven to 350 degrees Fahrenheit. Then, mix the butter and both the granulated and brown sugars in a mixing bowl until well combined.
Next, add the egg, milk and vanilla. Beat until well-combined.
Next, add the baking soda and mix until fully incorporated. I like to add this before the flour so that it gets mixed together fully.
Then, add the flour to the mixture 1/2 cup at a time. Make sure to use a rubber spatula so that you get all the flour off the sides of the bowl and mixed together.
Once all the flour is mixed, you can add the white chocolate chips. I will be honest, this is the time that I also am munching on white chocolate chips because they are just so GOOD!
Then, you can cut about 16 maraschino cherries in half and then half again. I liked that the cherries were still large enough to taste them in these white chocolate chip cookies.
You will then want to mix these cherries into the batter using a rubber spatula so they don’t get crushed, but still mixed in to make for the best white chocolate chip cookies with maraschino cherries.
Roll the cookie dough into balls and smash them down a little bit so when they cook they flatten out evenly.
Bake the white chocolate chip cookies for 8-10 minutes rotating after about half-way.
I like using parchment paper on my cookie sheet to make clean-up easy. Parchment paper can be found at the grocery store near the aluminum foil, and wax paper or you can find it here on Amazon.
This white chocolate chip cookies recipe makes approximately 18 cookies depending on how big you make them.
Thanks for reading! I hope you enjoy these white chocolate chip cookies with maraschino cherries. They are so deliciously sweet!

White Chocolate Chip Cookies With Maraschino Cherries
These white chocolate chip cookies are bursting with flavor from the maraschino cherries.

- 1/2 cup granulated sugar
- 1/2 cup brown sugar
- 1 egg

- 1 tsp milk
- 1/2 tsp baking soda
- 1 1/2 cups all-purpose flour
- 3/4 cup white chocolate chips
- 1/2 cup maraschino cherries, chopped roughly 16 cherries
Pre-heat oven to 350 degrees Fahrenheit. Then, add your butter (softened) and both the granulated and brown sugars to a bowl. Mix together on medium-low speed until it resembles a creamy texture.
Next, add the egg, milk, vanilla, and baking soda. Finally add the flour 1/2 cup at a time. Use a rubber spatula to scrape any flour that might be stuck on the sides or bottom of the bowl.
Add in the white chocolate chips and and the chopped maraschino cherries with a rubber spatula so that way the cherries hold their shape.
With your hands or a cookie scoop, roll the balls into about 1 inch diameter and place on a cookie sheet lined with parchment paper.
Then, with the palm of your hand, smash them down a little bit so that they cook evenly. Bake 8-10 minutes rotating half-way through the cook time until te cookies are golden brown.
