Most of you might remember Candace Cameron Bure from her days as DJ Tanner on Full House -- at least that's how I remember her. These days she's a best-selling author, mother and avid philanthropist. This holiday season, she stars in The Heart of Christmas, which premiered on GMC on Saturday, Dec. 4. Her New York Times best-seller, Reshaping It All, chronicles her lifelong struggle with food and the physical and spiritual changes that she underwent to make the public transformation from chubby child star to one of the hottest moms in Hollywood . Candace is an avid supporter of many causes, such as Skip1.org, Compassion International, Sheraton House and Children's Hunger Fund, and she's also the national ambassador for National House of Hope.

She loves these Oatmeal Chocolate Chip Cherry Cookies that are both delicious and a bit healthful: "My BFF, Dilini, and I LOVE sweets and will go out of our way to find the good ones. Every time I'm in Napa, I have to get a chocolate cherry scone from Bouchon Bakery and bring one back for her. One night in, we intended to bake traditional oatmeal raisin cookies, but I was craving chocolate. She had just bought dried cherries, so we decided to make a cookie version of our favorite scone. Score! I absolutely love texture in my food, so the whole wheat flour and oatmeal along with the chocolate chips and cherries becomes a party to taste buds. Sometimes we'll even add flax seed for more texture. And, of course, being the mom that I am, I always make enough cookies and put them in my kids' school lunches the next day."
