Chocolate Cherry Cookies

READY IN: 27mins
Recipe by Lou van

Taken from March 2009 Good Food Magazine. I made these today and don't want to lose the recipe hence posting here. I used dried cherries instead of the glace cherries just because we prefer them. The raw dough can be frozen, if cooking from frozen add a few minutes to the cooking time.

What a fabulous cookie !! I dumped all ingredients into food processor due to lack of time , added a drop of almond essence and had a chewy but soft cookie to eat in such a short amount of time, smelled heavenly too !!
