White Chocolate Chip Cherry Almond Cookies: Savory Sweet and Satisfying

Normally I am not a fan of nuts in my cookies, except for my favorite, white chocolate macadamia nut. These however, were so amazingly delicious, even with the slivered almonds in them. But how could they not be delicious? White chocolate and dried cherries in a soft chewy cookie, that is my kind of cookie.
