  • 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.

Best cookie recipe I've used. Tried a few different combinations but my favourite is cherry & white chocolate.

I thought these cookies were nice but more crumbley than I expected. Really nice if you add dessicated coconut and mixed berries and white chocolate... Which is great if you have bizarre people in your family who don't like dark or milk chocolate!!

Mine look nothing like the picture but they taste fab. I used dried sour cherries instead of glacé cherries and they are just gorgeous. The batter was amazing too, my 16yr old, who usually says she's too old for that kind of thing now, licked the bowl clean

Just tried making these, mine turned out very cakey for some reason, but still yummy :) Didn't have a problem with the spreading though
