Our simple Cherry Biscuits (or Cookies) are a sweet treat from Cornwall. We've used the classic combination of cherries and dark chocolate to make a really decadent biscuit. The biscuit mix is made using a very simple method of creaming together the butter and sugar and then bringing together the dough with your hands.

Method

  1. Preheat the oven to 200C (fan 180C, gas mark 6) and line a couple of baking sheets.

  2. Using an electric whisk cream together the butter and sugar until light and fluffy.

  3. Whisk in the golden syrup and then stir in the flour, baking powder, cherries, chocolate and milk until a firm dough is formed, you may need to use your hands to bring together. Tip - place the tablespoon measure in boiling water for 30 seconds then measure out the golden syrup and you will find the syrup just slips off the spoon.

  4. Using your hands roll the dough into 20 walnut sized balls. Place slightly apart from each other on lined baking sheets as they will spread a little and press each one lightly with a fork.

  5. Bake in the oven for 12 minutes until golden. Cool on the baking sheets for a few minutes before transferring to a wire rack to cool completely.
