  • 2 2/3 cups all-purpose flour (spooned and leveled)
  • 2 teaspoons baking soda
  • 1/2 teaspoon fine salt
  • 2 sticks unsalted butter, room temperature
  • 2/3 cup granulated sugar
  • 1 cup packed light-brown sugar
  • 2 large eggs
  • 1 teaspoon pure vanilla extract
  • 1 cup semisweet chocolate chips
  • 1 cup dried tart cherries


  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Whisk together flour, baking soda, and salt.

  2. In a large bowl, using a mixer, beat butter and both sugars on high until pale and fluffy, 3 minutes. Beat in eggs and vanilla. Reduce speed to low, add flour mixture, and beat until combined. Stir in chocolate chips and cherries.

  3. Press mixture into a 9-by-13-inch metal baking pan. Bake until a toothpick inserted in center comes out with a few moist crumbs attached, 28 to 30 minutes. Let cool completely in pan on a wire rack.
