    Very tasty cookies, mine came out lovely and moist. I used fresh picked blackberries (200g) and milk chocolate cut up into small chunks(175g). I found that they cooked better at 190c fan assisted for 15 minutes.  -  28 Sep 2011


    Altered ingredient amounts. I split the chocolate portion in half and added fudge pieces, a teaspoon of vanilla extract and a dessertspoon of golden syrup, resulted in moist chewy cookies.  -  15 Jan 2011


    Very good. Next time I will heat the cranberries and oj, then let it cool. This should help to get more orange flavor into the cookie.  -  06 Dec 2002  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
