    White Chocolate, Blueberry and Pine Nut Cookies

    I have a suspicion that for serious chocolate lovers, cookies fall into the same maligned category as orange-flavoured chocolate. A teensy bit naff? A little common? Maybe, but I love them, kids love them, aunties and uncles love them, grans and grandpas love them. So enjoy these ones, with their sweet nuggets of white chocolate, buttery pine nuts and tart, fragrant blueberries.

    • Preparation time: 15 minutes
    • Cooking time: 15 minutes plus cooling
    • Total time: 30 minutes plus cooling 30 minutes

    Makes: 20

    Ingredients

    • 150g butter, softened
    • 150g caster sugar
    • 220g self-raising flour
    • 1 tbsp milk
    • 80g pine nuts, roughly chopped
    • 100g white chocolate, roughly chopped
    • 100g dried wild blueberries (such as Juicy Blues, from the home-baking section), roughly chopped

    Method

    1. Preheat the oven to 190°C, gas mark 5. Line 2 baking trays with non-stick baking parchment.
    2. Beat the butter with the sugar until light and fluffy, then work in the flour and milk to make a stiff dough. Mix in the pine nuts, white chocolate and blueberries. Roll dessertspoonfuls of the mixture into balls, then place on the baking trays, leaving a 5cm gap between each ball, to allow for spreading. Use the prongs of a fork to gently press each ball down to form a rough disc, about 1cm thick.
    3. Put both trays in the oven and bake for 10-14 minutes, swapping the trays around halfway through the cooking time. Take the trays of cookies out of the oven when they are only just coloured, still barely brown. Cool for 5 minutes on the tray, then transfer to a rack to finish cooling.
