Oat and raisin cookies
Oat and raisin cookies are so simple and quick to make, using basic ingredients that are nearly always in the cupboard. These have been baked to my personal taste golden and crisp on the outside whilst soft and slightly chewy on the inside, but you can alter the cooking time to create a crisper or softer cookie. These are studded with raisins adding a fruity note to these cookies, absolutely delicious and so quick!
Makes 12-15 cookies
85g unsalted butter
75g caster sugar
75g porridge oats
50g plain flour
1 beaten egg
Pre-heat the oven to 180°C/fan 160°C/gas 4.
Line a baking tray with grease proof paper.
Begin by creaming the butter and sugar together in a large bowl, until light and fluffy.
Stir in all the remaining ingredients until completely combined.
Shape the mixture into walnut sized balls and place onto the lined baking tray, spaced roughly 2cm apart.
Flatten with the back of a spoon and bake in the preheated oven for 12-14 minutes until lightly golden brown.
The cookies will be quite soft whilst warm however they will continue to harden as they cool.
Serve with a glass of milk or hot coffee.
