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.
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.
