    Sift together flour, baking soda and salt in separate bowl. With mixer on low speed, add milk to the butter mixture, then add the flour mixture. Beat until just combined (batter should be stiff).
    In another bowl, combine nuts, cherries and white chocolate chunks. Stir into batter with wooden spoon just until blended. Drop cookie dough by heaping tablespoons onto prepared cookie sheet, 2 inches apart. Bake 11 to 13 minutes, or until golden, then transfer cookies to wire rack to cool.

  • Chocolate crinkles, and Pecan Sandies, those are MY 2 favorites... As for our boys, it's snickerdoodles, and chocolate chip. Oh and they love to help decorate sugar cookies.
