These Cookies were Heaven!

Makes about 2 dozen 3-inch cookies
1 1/2 cups all-purpose flour
1 teaspoon baking soda
1 cup (2 sticks) butter, room temperature
3/4 cup granulated sugar
3/4 cup light-brown sugar
1 egg
1 teaspoon pure vanilla extract
1 1/2 cups oatmeal
1 cup dried cherries
1 cup semi or milk Chocolate Chips
1 cup toffee pieces, (5 1/2 ounces)
Optional items:
1/2 cup Coconut
1 cup Walnuts or other nut
Heat oven to 350 degrees. Sift together flour and baking soda, and set aside. Cream butter and sugars on medium-high speed until light and fluffy, 2 to 3 minutes. Scrape down the sides of the bowl once or twice during mixing. Add egg, and mix on high speed to combine. Add vanilla extract; mix to combine. Scrape down the sides of the bowl. Add the sifted flour a bit at a time on a low speed until well combined. Add oatmeal, cherries, chocolate, and toffee pieces; mix to combine. Bake until golden brown, 8 to 10 minutes. Remove from oven, and transfer to a baking rack to cool. Eat and enjoy the calories!!

I actually used craisens instead of dried cherries and they tasted great!
