  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. Line a baking sheet with parchment paper and set aside.
  2. In a mixing bowl, mix flour, carob, gelatin, baking soda and salt.
  3. In another mixing bowl, cream shortening, maple, coconut sugar, and vanilla together.
  4. Place a fine mesh sieve over the shortening mixture bowl and sift the dry flour mixture into it.
  5. Carefully combine the flour mixture with the shortening mixture until a dough forms.
  6. Add the cherries. Place in refrigerator for 10 minutes to chill.
  7. Use approximately 1-2 tablespoon-sized scoops to place dough onto baking sheet, gently pressing down on each.
  8. Bake for 9 minutes, then begin checking every 2 minutes until they reach desired firmness (they will get firmer as they cool, so do not over bake).
This recipe was inspired by the lovely folks at Otto's Cassava Flour and their traditional chocolate chip cookie recipe.
