  • 1/4 cup vegan butter (1/2 stick)
  • 3/4 cup brown sugar
  • 1 flax egg (1 tbsp ground flax meal mixed with 2.5 tbsp water)
  • 1.5 tsp vanilla extract
  • 1 drop vegan gel food coloring (pink, optional)
  • 1 1/2 cups all purpose flour
  • 1/2 tsp baking soda
  • 1/4 tsp salt
  • 2 tbsp soy milk
  • 3/4 cup maraschino cherries drained and finely chopped, 3/4 cup before chopping
  • 3/4 cup vegan chocolate chips


  • Combine your flax meal and water in a bowl to create your flax egg and set aside for 5 minutes.
  • Preheat oven to 350°F and prepare a baking sheet with parchment paper and nonstick spray.
  • In a stand mixer or in a large bowl using an electric mixer, cream butter and sugar together until smooth.
  • Add the flax egg and vanilla and mix until incorporated.
  • In a separate bowl, combine flour, baking soda, and salt. Whisk together.
  • Add the dry ingredients to the wet and mix until no dry flour remains.
  • Add milk and mix again.
  • Fold in your chopped cherries and chocolate chips until they are evenly distributed.
  • Spoon out a heaping tbsp size amount of dough and roll into a ball and place the ball on your prepared baking sheet. Repeat with the remaining dough, making sure to leave enough room for the cookies to spread a bit.
  • Bake for 16 minutes and allow to cool on the tray until they are cool to touch.
