Every once in a while, I like to make a dessert that’s somewhat healthy. 🙂
This recipe is my attempt to create a healthier version of a chocolate chip cookie.
This delightful cookie is made with honey and soy milk. I also wanted to add a little something extra to the mix, so I chopped up some maraschino cherries and threw them into the batter.
