I promised my friend from Eindhoven, Holland a long time ago to send her cookies. And now I finally managed to bake some.
I wanted to add dried cherries, but in the beginning I couldn't find them anywhere and this one supermarket that actually had them sold a tiny bag for 4 €, eek!!! What's up with that? Are dried cherries always that expensive?
Anyway, I wanted to substitute dried cranberries for the cherries, but only remembered that when the cookies had been almost done.
I used Katies recipe, but used only 1 cup flour and added 1/4 cup cocoa powder. They are a tad bit too sweet for me(but they're not for me so maybe they are just right), but that's my fault. I had only about a tbsp. dark cocoa powder left and then used the organic powder for cocoa drinks which is already sweetend a little bit... I just didn't remember that and used the amount of sugar the recipe recommended. They are not too chocolatey(thanks to the not-enough-cocoa-in-the-house-incident), but taste very good! I can't describe it, but the brown sugar added a very nice flavor!
I imagine they must taste great dipped in some Latte!
So Jody, I know these aren't exactly the cookies I wanted to send to you. Do you want me to bake you another batch?
