After two batches of cherry jam, I still had more cherries and decided to make cookies! I made a double batch, baking half and freezing the other half in dough balls for another day. Inspired by a recipe found on CakeFYI.
Fresh Cherry Coconut Cookies with Chocolate Chips

Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
1/2cup butter
1/2cup brown sugar
1/4cup white sugar
1 egg
1 tsp vanilla extract
3/4cup all purpose flour
1/2cup whole wheat flour
1/2 tsp baking soda
1/2tsp salt (i omitted salt as I had salted butter on hand)
1 c oats
3/4 cup shredded coconut
handful of chocolate chips
15 ripe cherries, pitted and chopped


Cream the butter and sugars for 5 minutes. You'll want to move on after two, thinking it surely had been 5 whole minutes. Trust me. It makes a difference. Add the egg and beat for a full minute. Beat in the vanilla.  Add flour, salt, and baking soda and beat until a soft dough forms. Stir in the oats, coconut, and chocolate chips if you choose. Stir in the cherries, gently.

Drop by tablespoons full on to a Silpat lined cookie sheet. I flash froze half the dough in cookie dough balls and sealed them up in Ziploc bags for later fresh baked cookies. And promptly baked up the rest of the batch and enjoyed over the next couple of days.
Bake for 13-15 minutes, until golden brown. Enjoy!

Looks delicious. I wonder if it would work for mulberries.  Right now I have them coming out of my ears.

I've never baked with mulberries but worth a try. These were very juicey cherries so I'd guess you could substitute just fine. enjoy!
