    1. Preheat oven to 180 C / Gas 4.
    2. In a bowl, combine the caster sugar, dark brown soft sugar and margarine. Beat until smooth and creamy. Add the eggs one at a time mixing well after each one. Beat mixture until well combined.
    3. Mix in the milk, bicarb, baking powder, salt, cinnamon and vanilla to the egg mixture. Beat for one minute. Add the flour and mix until incorporated. Add the walnuts and mix again. Add the oats a third at a time, mixing well after each addition. Stir in the dried cherries and mix just until they are distributed evenly.
    4. Drop heaping spoonfuls of cookie dough about 5cm apart on ungreased baking trays. Do not shape them, they will spread evenly during the baking process. Bake at 180 C / Gas 4 for 12 to 13 minutes. The tops of the cookies should just turn a light golden brown. Remove the cookies from the oven and let sit on the sheets for about 5 minutes before moving the cookies to wire racks to cool. Let cookies cool to room temperature than place in airtight containers for storage.
