Combine into a second bowl:
- 1 cup dried tart cherries
- 12 ounces semisweet chocolate chips
- 2 cups rolled oats
- 1 cup slivered almonds
Beat until light and fluffy (about 4 minutes):
- 1/2 lb butter
Add (in this order):
- 1 cup dark brown sugar
- 1 cup sugar
- 2 eggs
- 1.5 tsp vanilla extract
- the first bowl of dry ingredients
Stir in (by hand or dough hook):

Using a 1 tablespoon scoop, place about a dozen cookies per sheet.
