Chewy Chocolate Cherry Cookies

I have had this recipe on my “To Make” document for a long time.  I finally remembered to pick up some dried cherries and YES, these are good!  Delicious combination of tart and sweet.  Recipe from

1 cup flour
1/3 cup unsweetened cocoa
1/2 tsp baking powder
1/4 tsp baking soda
1/4 tsp salt
1 cup sugar
1/3 cup butter, softened
1 tsp vanilla
1 egg
2/3 cup dried cherries
2/3 cup semisweet chocolate chips
