chocolate-cherry blondies

the goods:
2 and 2/3 cups all-purpose flour
4 teaspoons baking soda
1/2 teaspoon fine salt
2 sticks unsalted butter, room temperature
2/3 cup granulated sugar
1 cup packed light-brown sugar
2 large eggs
1 teaspoon pure vanilla extract
1 cup semisweet chocolate chips
1 cup dried tart cherries

Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Whisk together flour, baking soda, and salt.

In a large bowl, using a mixer, beat butter and both sugars on high until pale and fluffy, 3 minutes. Beat in eggs and vanilla. Reduce speed to low, add flour mixture, and beat until combined. Stir in chocolate chips and cherries.

Press mixture into a 9-by-13-inch metal baking pan. Bake until toothpick inserted in center comes out with a few moist crumbs attached, 28 to 30 minutes. Let cool completely on a wire rack. Cut into squares.
