We love mixing and matching flavours to create some sensational cookie combinations at Doughlicious HQ. Our matcha and white chocolate blondies were super popular – so we decided to come up with another fabulously fruity cherry bakewell inspired recipe using our decadent Double Chocolate Chip cookie dough


Preheat the oven to 180ºC (160ºC fan) Gas 4. Grease and line an 8  in | 20 cm square tin.

Bring together the double chocolate cookie dough balls to form one large ball.

Lightly dust a work surface with flour and roll out into a square. Trim to fit the tin.

Carefully transfer to the base of the prepared tin, using the trimmings to press into the corners to ensure there are no gaps in the dough. Prick with a fork.

Meanwhile, in a large bowl, gently whisk together the melted butter and brown sugar. Stir in the vanilla extract. Add the egg and mix until combined.

Stir in flour, ground almonds and white chocolate chunks until evenly distributed throughout the mix. Add a splash of milk if necessary. Fold in the frozen cherries.

Pour the batter over the double chocolate cookie dough lined tin and smooth over the top.

Bake for around 30-40 minutes until golden or until a skewer inserted in the middle comes out clean.

Leave in the tin to cool completely.

Cook’s Tip

The exact cooking time will depend on how you like your blondies – these are fabulously fudgy, if you like them a little firmer, cook for the longer cooking time (covering with foil if they are browning too much).
