Cherry Chocolate Chip Oatmeal Cookies Recipe

I love oatmeal cookies.  They are so soft and chewy.  It is also fun to add different fill-ins to make an ordinary cookie extraordinary!  Today I was inspired by the dried cherries that I had in my cabinet.  I decided to add them into the cookies to add a tart flavor, along with some chocolate chips.
