Chewy, crunchy, salty and sweet- these biscuits have it all, including some white chocolate chips thrown in for good measure

    To purists, this is not chocolate because it is made only from the fat or butter of the cacao…


  1. Heat oven to 190C/170C fan/gas 5. Line 2 baking trays with baking parchment. Tip the butter, sugars and vanilla into a bowl. Beat with a hand-held electric whisk until pale and fluffy. Add the egg and beat again. Tip the flour, bicarb and a pinch of salt into the bowl, and use a spatula to mix together. Add the blueberries, pretzel pieces and chocolate chunks, and mix again until everything is combined.

  2. Scoop golf-ball-sized mounds of cookie dough onto the baking trays, making sure you leave plenty of space between each one. (You should fit 4-6 cookies on each tray, so you’ll have to bake in batches to make the total 20 cookies.) Can be frozen at this point – simply defrost in the fridge before baking. Bake for 18 mins, swapping the trays around halfway through.

  3. Remove the trays from the oven and leave to cool for 10 mins before transferring to a wire rack, then bake the second batch. Continue until all the cookies are baked. Will keep in a cookie jar for up to 1 week.

Really tasty combo of flavours here. The blueberries I used were huge and meant that parts of the cookies fell apart so next time, I'll make sure I use smaller ones! Also took out of oven 2-3mins before stated time.

Really tasty cookies but struggled to incorporate the blueberries into the mix and ended up with some really odd coloured biscuits! Next time I think I'll just add the white chocolate and pretzels to the mix and press 3 - 4 frozen blueberries into the top of the dough balls. Definitely agree with previous comments - remove from oven when golden around the edges and still pale in the centre.

Delicious! My boys ate half of them before they’d even cooled. I used 150g blueberries and that was just right, and also keep an eye on them - 14 mins is fine in the oven. I was a little sceptical about the pretzels but they are so good as they remain crunchy and add saltiness to contrast the white chocolate. I will definitely be doing these again!!

Nice! The squishy, sweet blueberries and crunchy, salty pretzels make a lovely contrast. I used salted caramel pretzels (it's what I had) but I think plain salted would have worked better. Agree that 200g blueberries would have been too much - I used 150g and it was plenty. I got 30 cookies out of the mix, perhaps because I am unfamiliar with golf balls! I cooked for less time, but perhaps should have been even less. You definitely want to take them out whilst they're still pale.

Lovely cookies, but definitely use about half the amount of blueberries and throw in a little more white chocolate in my opinion! Also, take them out of the oven well before they look done, mine came out a little too tough and chewy because I left them in for too long.

Lovely tasting, but far too many blueberries - the biscuits just fall apart. Would suggest half the amount
