Method

In a large bowl, cream together butter and both sugars with an electric mixer until light and fluffy, about 4 minutes.

Add vanilla and eggs and beat again until combined, about 1 minute.

Sift together flours, salt, baking soda and baking powder in a second bowl then add to butter mixture and beat just until combined, about 1 minute.

Gently stir in chocolate chips, cherries and pecans then cover and chill for at least 1 hour.

Preheat oven to 350°F.

Drop chilled dough by rounded tablespoonfuls onto parchment-lined baking sheets, spacing cookies about 2 inches apart.

Bake until just beginning to brown, 10 to 12 minutes. Let them sit on baking sheets for 2 minutes before transferring to wire racks to cool completely.
