I couldn't wait to bake from Jeanne's cookbook. Flipping through it, I could tell the recipes would become instant favorites. With the blustery weather we had recently, I was craving chocolate chip cookies and decided that would be perfect.
For a twist I added dried cherries and some chili powder.
Jeanne's cookies were amazingly tender. I loved the chewiness of the cherries and the kick of the chili powder.

A hit of chili powder and sea salt add a nice surprise to these classic chocolate chip cookies. Resist the urge to bake these cookies longer than the recommended time. Once they cool they set perfectly.
