Trail mix cookies are a study in texture and these chewy cookies are loaded with all my favorites: crunchy almonds, buttery cashews, chewy dried cherries, and plenty of chocolate (a trail mix must!).

Trail Mix Cookies | Tutti DolciThe sweet and salty mix is simply irresistible – don’t be surprised if you find yourself reaching for just one more cookie. I highly recommend a finish of flaky salt to harmonize the flavors quite beautifully.

Trail Mix Cookies

  • Yield: 28 cookies

Ingredients

  • 1 2/3 cups flour
  • 1 tsp cornstarch
  • 1 tsp baking soda
  • 1/2 tsp salt
  • 1/2 cup unsalted butter, at room temperature
  • 3/4 cup light brown sugar
  • 1 large egg
  • 2 tsp vanilla extract
  • 1/3 cup toasted almonds, coarsely chopped
  • 1/3 cup toasted cashews, coarsely chopped
  • 2/3 cup dried cherries, chopped
  • 1/3 cup chocolate chips (blend of semisweet and white)

Topping

  • 1/3 cup semisweet chocolate chips
  • flaky salt

Instructions

  1. Whisk together flour, cornstarch, baking soda, and salt in a medium bowl. Beat butter and brown sugar in a large mixer bowl at medium speed until creamy; beat in egg and vanilla until combined. Reduce speed to low and gradually add flour mixture; beat just until incorporated. Fold in almonds, cashews, cherries, and chocolate chips. Cover dough and chill in the refrigerator for at least 2 hours, or overnight.
  2. Preheat oven to 350°F (If cookie dough has chilled overnight, let stand at room temperature for 30 minutes before baking). Line two baking sheets with silicone mats or parchment paper. Form 1 1/2-inch balls of dough and place two inches apart on prepared baking sheets; flatten mounds slightly.
  3. Top cookies with remaining chocolate chips, pressing to adhere. Sprinkle with sea salt and bake, rotating pans halfway through, for 9 minutes, until edges are set. Cool for 4 minutes on baking sheets, then transfer to a wire rack to cool completely. Store in an airtight container at room temperature.

  1. You’ve done it again! I’m excited that there’s cashews and cherries in the mix- my faves. I can’t even tell you how many cashews we go through in this house. PS- TJ’s sells cashew ‘pieces’ which are great so you don’t have to chop 😉 This reicpe is definitely on this list this week. For me and the boys! Thanks Laura! xx
