Morello cherry, white chocolate chip and orange cookies


This is my take on honey&co’s cookies from their book “At home” recipe also available online at Financial Times website.

I found dried Turkish morello cherries last week in supermarket and decided to give these cookies an other try. I made them once before when we were climbing snowdon as a snack.


I reduced the sugar a lot but I think there’s still scope to reduce it more. I am planning to make an other version for me sweetened with dates or xylitol and using dark chocolate, I will post when I try.
