  • 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.

First time I've made biscuits and these were eaten as quickly as they were made. Fancy experimenting with peanut butter

I liked these but I wouldn't rave about them. The texture was all wrong, cakey rather than chewy but it could have been me! Yummy but room for improvement!
