Double chocolate cherry cookies

1 cup butter, softened
1 1/4 cups white sugar
2 eggs
2 teaspoons vanilla extract
2 cups unbleached all-purpose flour
2/3 cup cocoa powder
3/4 teaspoon baking soda
1/4 teaspoon salt
1 cups semisweet chocolate chips
1 cup dried cherries

Preheat oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C).
In large bowl, beat butter, sugar, eggs, and vanilla until light and fluffy. Combine the flour, cocoa, baking soda, and salt; stir into the butter mixture until well blended. Mix in the chocolate chips and cherries. Drop by rounded teaspoonfuls onto ungreased cookie sheets.
Bake for about 12 minutes in the preheated oven, or just until set. Cool slightly on the cookie sheets before transferring to wire racks to cool completely. Makes 48 cookies.
