How to make it

  • Method
  • 1. Preheat the oven to 200C/400F/Gas 6.
  • 2. Place the butter and the caster sugar into a bowl and beat together until light and creamy.
  • 3. Add the sunflower oil and brown sugar and fold through to combine.
  • 4. Add the egg and vanilla essence and mix well.
  • 5. In a separate bowl, mix together the flour, salt and baking powder.
  • 6. Add the flour mixture to the butter and sugar mixture and mix well to form a dough.
  • 7. Add the cherries and brandy and fold into the dough.
  • 8. Fold in the almonds, hazelnuts and the white and dark chocolate pieces.
  • 9. On a floured work surface, carefully roll out the dough to 1cm/½in thick.
  • 10. Using the cookie cutter of your choice, cut out 8-16 cookies (depending on the size of the cutter).
  • 11. Place the cookies onto a greased baking tray (not to close together as they will spread). Place into the oven to bake for 15 minutes, or until golden-brown and cooked through.
  • 12. Remove from the oven and leave to cool on the trays for 8-10 minutes, then transfer to a wire cooling rack to cool completely.
