Ingredients
• 1/2 cup (1 stick) butter or margarine, softened

• 1/2 teaspoon baking powder
• 1/2 teaspoon baking soda
• 1/2 teaspoon salt
• 1/2 cup dried tart cherries
• 1/2 cup mini semisweet chocolate morsels

Directions
Put margarine and sugar in a large mixing bowl. Beat with an electric mixer on medium speed 3 to 4 minutes, or until well mixed.

Let cool in pan on wire rack 10 minutes. Loosen edges with a metal spatula. Remove from pan. Let cool completely.
