Makes 40 cookies


  1. Preheat oven to 350°F. Coat cookie sheet with baking spray.

  2. Combine all-purpose flour, whole-wheat flour and salt in bowl; stir well with whisk. Set aside.

  3. Beat sugar and eggs with mixer at high speed until thick and pale (about 4 minutes). Add oil and vanilla extract, beating until well-blended. Reduce speed to low and beat in flour mixture just until combined. Stir in pistachios, cherries and chocolate.

  4. Divide dough in half and place on prepared cookie sheet. Shape each half into smooth 10-inch-long roll, and flatten to about 1-inch tall. Bake at 350°F for 25 minutes or until lightly browned.

  5. Remove rolls from baking sheet; cool 10 minutes on wire rack. Reduce oven temperature to 325°F.

  6. Cut each roll on bias diagonally into about 20 (1/2-inch) slices. Place slices, cut sides down, on same cookie sheet. Bake for 10 minutes. Turn cookies over, and bake an additional 10 minutes (cookies will be slightly soft in center but will harden as they cool). Cool completely on wire rack.
