  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.

Made these with cranberries and a bar of dark chocolate with almonds I found in the cupboard. Seriously diet busting gorgeousness, colleagues loved them and they disappeared in a hearbeat!

Made mine with choc chips and flaked almonds. Glorious!! Grandkids couldn't get enough of them and always want them when they come to visit.

Just cooking as I type this. I halved the mixture and made 6 giant ones. Fingers crossed they come out ok and taste great :)

Have not made these yet but worried by the amount of sugar how they can possibly call these healthy beggar`s belief

Made these for my girlfriend as a treat she loved them, should have scored me some brownie points.

Gorgeous cookies. Was worried the mix was a bit dry when i added the flour but they turned out perfect. I used a mixture of white, milk and plain chocolate aswell as the cherries and they were yummy..will be making my second lot today!

I made these today and put 3 eggs in by mistake and they still taste great. I will be making these again but I will probably make a double amount and freeze half so that I can make them easier next time. I must also put a smaller amount on the tray so that the biscuits don't come out so big. Overall a big hit.

These are soooo good and so easy, my 8 year old daughter liked helping to make them and eat them! Used 100g of milk choc chips and demerara sugar instead as that was what was in my cupboard. Will be making more for sure.

These cookies were very nice, but were a bit 'cakey' rather than chewy
