Directions

In a small bowl combine orange juice and cherries; let stand overnight. In a large bowl, beat butter and sugar until fluffy. Beat in egg and orange peel. In another bowl, combine flour and baking soda. Stir into butter mixture. Add cherries, any soaking liquid, and oats; mix well. Drop by rounded teaspoonfuls onto greased baking sheets, spacing 2 inches apart; flatten slightly. Bake at 350 degrees 10-12 minutes. Transfer to racks and cool completely. Heat white chocolate and vegetable oil in microwave safe bowl for 3-4 minutes on LOW, stirring once. Stir until smooth. Dip one third of each cookie in chocolate; set on wax paper. Chill until firm. Makes about 3 dozen. Variation: Divide dough into 4 equal portions. Place two at least 6 inches apart on baking sheet. With well floured hands, pat each portion into a 12 inch long log. Flatten each log to 1 1/2 inches wide. Bake until golden, 12 -14 minutes. Let cool on baking sheets 2 minutes; cut logs diagonally into 1 inch wide strips. Dip in chocolate as above.
