These are fantastic, so soft, chewy and chocolaty! I have made these twice, each time with a few slight changes.
First time: I substituted 1/4 c. wheat flour (which couldn't be tasted - I might try using 1/2 c.); cut back the butter to 1 stick (might cut back 2 more Tbsp next time); cut the sugar to 3/4 c.; and omitted the nuts (personal preference). I also only used 3/4 cup cherries because that's what I got out of a 10 oz. jar, but the boyfriend thought this ended up being the perfect amount of cherries.
Second time: Used all white flour (didn't have wheat on hand), same amount of cherries as last time, 1 stick butter (forgot to cut back as planned), only 2/3 c. sugar, 8 Tbsp cocoa and no nuts.
I think next time I will use 3/4 c. sugar and 8 Tbsp cocoa. I also might try adding 1 c. semi-sweet chocolate chips (although these are great without them). These would also be good sprinkled with powdered sugar.
I got 35 cookies using my little cookie scoop (sorry, not sure what size it is).
