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.

These are so good. As its lent, i replaced the chocolate and cherries with sultanas and macadamia nuts and they are so nice! I've been looking for a good cookie recipe for ages - some other ones can turn out quite cake-like, but these ones were spot on - crispy on the outside, wonderfully gooey on the inside. yum yum yum.

Well i tryed !!! what a disaster, they all went into one i cut them with a pastry cutter into nice little circles which looked much better, then i tryed to get them off the baking sheet and they all broke into bits ,they do taste nice but not worth all the work and washing up !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Made these for red nose day. Gorgeous! Tip - Make the blobs about the size of a dessert spoon - some of mine ended up the size of a plate! I used extra chocolate instead of cherries.

Absolutely lovely, gooey, melt in the mouth cookies. Gorgeous and in my opinion, deserve the full 5 star treatment.

all the family loved these tasty and very quick to make cookies. i had ran out of cherries and used some dried cranberries that i had and they were just as lovely. i will use this again and again.
