Double Chocolate Cherry Almond Oatmeal Cookies

This is an absolutely delicious and decadent cookie that is perfect for the holidays with cocoa powder, chocolate chips, sliced almonds, and cherries. These add-ins make this a great one bake and share with family. These are guaranteed to go in a flash! 

I have used the dried cherries from the farm we always go for cherry picking. Near our home, we have so many farms and this particular one, they make their own dried cherries and they are awesome. I always bag a couple of packs to use them in cookies during Christmas time. And here is the one we make often with these cherries. These chewy chocolatey cookies are the best! These are ideal for any holiday cookie tray or gifts.
