I like old stuff. I'm a vintage girl and constantly inspired by things from the past. The inspiration behind these crackle cookies is, not surprisingly, Black Forest Gateau. Whilst I am not going to lie to you and say that eating these cookies is like eating a Black Forest Gateau, they do, for me, conjure up the same sense of nostalgia. The dried cherries give these little nuggets a delicious sourness which works so well against the heady hit of chocolate. They are not overly sweet, but with their prettily pink dusting of cherry powder, they have just enough to indulge your sweet tooth.
I use Food Thoughts products as I believe they give a superior flavour, however, feel free to use whatever you have in your store cupboard.
