Cherry chip cookies have become my favorite cookie. Not only are they great tasting, but they are so easy to make.

I have enjoyed these cookies since I was a kid because my mom loved them as a kid. Here is what she had to say…

“There was a bakery in the town neighboring my hometown that my mom worked at. They made the best cherry chip cookies ever. Once in a while my mom would take us with her to pick up something and let us choose one treat. I always chose a cherry chip cookie. Eventually, the bakery closed and it had been years since I’d had the delight of this cookie. I always checked in any new bakery I found to serif they carried them, with no success. I came across a recipe several years ago that used cranberries, but tasted very much like the cherry chip cookies I remembered. I converted it into a gluten-free version and now my life is complete (just kidding, but these cookies really do help). -Chandice’s mom, Tana

I think they are absolutely perfect for a Galentines Day Cookie Decorating Party. Munching on them while decorating cookies sounds like a dream. Their red color and cherry flavor scream Valentine’s Day in my opinion.

If you like these cookies, you should definitely try out our Gluten-Free Chocolate Chip cookies or our Gluten-Free Monster Cookies. Both are easy to make and absolutely delicious.

My kids love helping me make these cookies because of the fun cherry chips. They are used to chocolate chips, so the red cherry chips are exciting to them. I usually have to buy an extra bag for them to munch on while we bake…

What you need

One of the many things I love about this recipe is that it is super simple. There are only a few ingredients needed, making it an easy recipe.

ingredients for cherry chip cookies

Gluten-free all purpose flour

This recipe requires gluten-free all purpose flour and almond flour. Using both gives a light, fluffy, soft texture to your cookies and has a yummy taste. My favorite gluten-free flour is the King Arthur brand.

Baking with gluten-free flour can be overwhelming, so I wrote a whole post about it. My Gluten-Free Flour and Starches post has all of the tips and tricks when it comes to gluten-free baking. Don’t stress; you’ll be a pro in no time.

Almond flour

Almond flour is great for healthy eating as it is low carb. It also creates a moist and super tender dessert, so it is a win-win!

Eating healthy while still having yummy treats? Count me in.

Cherry chips

Cherry chips give a great cherry flavor without having to actually have maraschino cherries. Chopped cherries are yummy, but can make your cookies soggy. Maraschino cherry juice will also bleed, making the cookies not as pretty.

You can find cherry chips at your local grocery store. While you are out, you should grab some candy heart sprinkles to make these adorable Grinch Cookies. They are great, especially if you are making these chewy cherry chip cookies for a Christmas cookie exchange.

Why did my cookies fall flat?

Smaller scoops of cookie dough will help the cookies rise easier. You will also want to check if your baking powder is still good. Expired baking powder will keep your cookies from rising.

How to keep my cookies moist?

If your gluten-free cookies are not as moist as you would like, try adding and extra egg to the dough next time.

How do I store the leftovers?

Allow the cookies to cool to room temperature before doing anything else. Then, place the cookies in an airtight container with parchment paper between each layer of cookies. Stacking them on top of each other will cause them to stick together.
