Blueberry Choc Chip Cookies by Dan Lepard

A cookie before bedtime

I never make cookies. I don’t drink milk, so no cookies. On the other hand, I can always be persuaded to try something new. Or I like to think so. As Celia, Suelle and Jacqueline had all made these and said they were great, I found myself making cookies at 9 pm tonight.

I used dried cranberries and raisins instead of blueberries or sour cherries which are the fruits Dan wrote in the recipe  but I didn’t have those and I did have cranberries….. (why were they in the cupboard? Who knows, they were relieved to get out of there that’s for sure)…. and some raisins and some milk choc chips and I confess I cooked them a bit hot as I misread the temperature instructions.  So they are a little browner maybe than they are supposed to be and a bit crisper, but you know what I don’t care, because they are cookies and they are mine and they are delicious and use wholemeal flour and brown sugar and are still a delight, so what’s not to love about them? Tell me if you can.

Edit Feb 2012 : If you feel tempted the recipe is still on the Guardian’s website, it is no longer available on Dan’s website however,which is where I linked to originally,  so you can’t see all the photos of my friends’ cookies anymore.

By the way I forgot to ask…. what’s your favourite cookie?  I think mine is straight choc chip or english shortbread biscuits, or maybe ginger nuts, or maybe dark chocolate digestives….but these are pretty tasty and easy to customize to suit!
