  • 225g self-raising flour
  • 50g plain chocolate, 50-70% cocoa, roughly chopped
  • 50g white chocolate, roughly chopped
  • 85g natural colour glacé cherry, roughly chopped

Method

  1. Heat oven to 190C/fan 170C/gas 5. Beat the butter, sugars and egg until smooth, then mix in the flour, chocolates and cherry pieces and ½ tsp salt. Spoon onto non-stick baking sheets in large rough blobs – you’ll get 20 out of this mix. Make sure they are well spaced as the cookies grow substantially as they bake. The raw dough can be frozen.

  2. Bake for 12-14 mins until just golden, but still quite pale and soft in the middle. If baking from frozen, give them a few mins more. Cool on the sheets for 5 mins, then lift onto racks with a fish slice and leave to cool completely.

I've just made these and substituted dates and almonds...they're yummy. Having read most of the reviews, especially to do with the size, I used teaspoons to drop onto baking sheets and made 35 - they came out the size of a digestive biscuit so for me..ideal

What a great recipe, have cooked 3 or 4 times now with great success. I find a heaped teaspoon of mixture makes the perfect size cookie. Chocolate orange is my favourite so far.

So delicious, I'm glad I froze half of the dough otherwise they would all be gone by now and I would have to go to the gym for the day. :) Crispy and and yet gooey. I used milk chocolate and cherries as I didn't have other chocolate in the house and I made sure I greased my baking tray really well after reading comments about the cookies breaking up. They were perfect and soooo yummy.

These cookies are absolutely divine. I make cookies as substitute for Christmas cards at work and have been after a new recipe. These are brilliant - lovely and soft in the middle, nice little crunch on the outside. As a filling I just used 100g of chocolate chips, but would love to try other combinations too. I also found out that I could get 32 cookies per batch - 8 on 4 baking trays.

Great result but still lovely and simple. Can't understand the people giving low rating when they've obviously made a mistake. Recipe is perfect just have to stick to step 2 to a tee.

Excellent cookies, nice and crisp yet chewy in the middle. I put some baking paper on baking trays and did 6 per tray, this was the perfect amount and they didn't run into each other. These taste just like the M&S chocolate chip cookies - yummy! my little girl certainly approved! :0)
