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

Absoultley delicous, i did not use the cherries just added more chocolate. I did as was suggested and used a dessert spoonful of dough, which made a nice size cookie. They only lasted 24hrs, which shows how good they are!

You really need to dollop only about a tea spoon size, otherwise THEY REALLY TURN OUT BIG. I mean BIG cookies. otherwise great.

I've just made these and substituted dates and almonds...they're yummy. Having read most of the reviews, especially to do with the size, I used teaspoons to drop onto baking sheets and made 35 - they came out the size of a digestive biscuit so for me..ideal

What a great recipe, have cooked 3 or 4 times now with great success. I find a heaped teaspoon of mixture makes the perfect size cookie. Chocolate orange is my favourite so far.
