2 sticks (1 cup) butter, softened

cup granulated sugar

cup packed brown sugar

1 egg

1 teaspoon almond extract

cup milk

3 cups all-purpose flour

teaspoon baking soda

cup dried cherries

cup dried cranberries

1 cup white chocolate chips

Heat the oven to 375 degrees. Line 2 baking sheets with kitchen parchment.

In a large bowl, use an electric mixer to beat the butter and both sugars until fluffy, 2 to 3 minutes. Add the egg, almond extract and milk, then mix well. Add the flour and baking soda, then mix just until the dry ingredients are well mixed in. Mix in the cherries, cranberries and chocolate chips.

Drop the dough in 2-tablespoon mounds on the prepared baking sheets, leaving 2 inches between them. Bake, in batches if necessary, 12-14 minutes, or until just lightly browned at the edges and still slightly soft at the center. Leave on the baking sheet for 2 minutes, then use a spatula to transfer to a wire rack to cool completely.

Makes 2 dozen cookies.
