A question about a recipe: Blondies -- Gluten-Free and Completely Delicious

I have a ton of cherries leftover from some testing I was doing. Does anyone know if fresh cherries would work in these instead of dried?

It would be easy enough to dry them. Just pit them, halve them and put them in your oven on a cookie sheet at the lowest setting and check them every six hours or so. If you do not put them on a rack inside the cookie sheet, turn them over every so often. I use my dehydrator, but oven works if you don't have one.

They might be too wet. It's almost like substituting grapes for raisins in oatmeal raisin cookies. If you want to try it, I'd think about starting with a half batch to see how it goes.

They might be a little wet, so I would coat them with coconut flour before adding and maybe bake them a little longer.
