Method

Cut the butter into cubes and add to a small pan over a medium heat. Melt the butter, then take it a little further so it turns golden-brown and starts to smell nutty. You’ll see little flecks of brown, toasted butter solids at the bottom of the pan. Meanwhile, chop the white chocolate and place in a large mixing bowl. Pour over the melted butter, leave for a minute, then stir until smooth. Beat in both types of sugar. Beat in the egg.

In a separate bowl, whisk the flour, baking powder and fine sea salt together. Add to the chocolate mixture and stir until it all just comes together. Crumble in the feta, add the dried cherries and mix briefly. Line two baking trays with greaseproof paper and shape the cookie mixture into 12 even sized balls. (Not to be a geek, but I weigh the dough and divide by 12. You’re looking at 80–85g per cookie.) Place on the trays, and make sure there is plenty of room between them. Place the trays in the fridge for at least 1 hour to help the mixture firm up so the cookies don’t spread too fast — the longer you leave them the more domed and chewy they will be.

Preheat the oven to 200°C/180°C fan/gas mark 6 and bake the cookies for 18 minutes, until deep golden-brown at the edge. If you have chilled the dough overnight, they might need a minute or two longer. Leave the cookies to cool completely on their trays before serving or storing in an airtight container.
