Like all my baking experiments, it began with a simple craving. I needed a pocket-sized treat that incorporated the dried, tart cherries I've become addicted to over the past few months (side note: I learned something new about 30-somethingi-self in the past 3 years...I love, love, love cherries). Self discovery as an adult: it happens.
Anyway, the cookie needed a bit of crunch and pistachios seemed a natural companion to the sour cherries. I sealed the deal with a little cardamom and 5 batches later I now have a delicious, new recipe to share with you. You can find my recipe for Sour Cherry Oatmeal Cookies with Pistachios over at Cafe Zupas this week. Consider it your excuse to fill that cookie jar (wait...does anyone use one of those?).
