Hello! I’m back again, after taking a break over the weekend. My mum baked chocolate-chip oatmeal cookies on Saturday, and seeing the pictures of those yummy cookies made me wanna do my own oatmeal cookie twist as well. So, I decided to go with raisins instead.
Last weekend I made classic oatmeal cookies – click here for the full post. Hence, I’m not going to put up so many pictures this post, just a couple. The recipe I’m putting below is basically the same as that of the classic oatmeal cookies, with the addition of raisins instead of chopped nuts. Ok now let’s get to the recipe!
OATMEAL RAISIN COOKIES (Makes 1 large baking tray)
1) 225g of butter
2) 1 cup of sugar
3) 1 cup of self-raising flour
4) 2 cups of quick cooking oats
5) 1/2 teaspoon of raisins
1) Melt butter and mix sugar with it in a large mixing bowl till sugar has dissolved.
2) Sift the flour and add it to the butter and sugar mix, then add the oats and raisins
3) Stir well until it achieves a homogenous texture
4) Using a teaspoon, scoop up 1 teaspoon of batter, and then form a small ball by rolling it between your palms
5) Place the balls of batter on a greased baking tray, leaving about 3 cm of space between each ball until the tray is full
6) Flatten the balls with your fingers so that they have roughly 1 to 1.5 cm of thickness
7) Bake in oven at around 170 deg celcius (medium heat for gas oven) for around 15 to 20 minutes, or until the edges of the cookies start turning golden brown
8) Once finished baking, use a spatula to move the cookies to a plate to cool
9) Serve with a large dose of happiness
