Cookie Recipe of the Week:
Fran’s Cherry Chocolate Chip Cookies

Image: The Cookie Elf

At the beginning of a new year, The Elf wants things to be easy and simple in the kitchen. You probably do, too.

Fran’s Cherry Chocolate Chip Cookies, a variation of oatmeal chocolate chip cookies, taste like they are made from scratch. But the recipe starts with a simple mix (a cookie mix rather than a cake mix), one readily available in grocery stores – with just a couple of additions.

The recipe comes to The Elf from Fran Woodruff of Homewood, Alabama. Thank you, Fran!
