Quick cookie recipe

Chocolate cherry hazelnut cookies
Ingredients – to make 12 BIG cookies

- 125g butter

- 100g light brown soft sugar

- 30g caster sugar

- 1 egg

- 1 teaspoons vanilla extract

- 50g flour

- 25g cocoa powder

- 1/4 teaspoon bicarbonate of soda

- 130g porridge oats

- 75g chopped hazelnuts

- 100g chopped glacé cherries

Heat the oven to gas mark 3. Whip the butter and sugar together in a bowl, then add egg slowly, followed by the dry ingredients - add the nuts and cherries last. Shape into 12 balls and put on a baking sheet lined with greaseproof paper. Bake for 15 mins. Leave to cool completely then enjoy this chewy chocolaty treat!

I made these cookies last night when I fancied something sweet. They turned out pretty tasty but I think if I had some dark choc chips in place of cocoa powder they would be another level!

In other news my sour dough starter has come to life! After a couple of days it smelled pretty bad and I was tempted to give up on it. I persevered and now it smells bready and looks foamy.. just need to keep it going now til the weekend so I can make sour dough loaves.
If they turn out ok I will post the instructions I followed soon!
