Chewy Oatmeal Raisin Cookies
- • 8 oz (227g) butter
- • 7 oz (199g)caster sugar
- • 7 oz (199g) soft brown sugar
- • 2 large eggs
- • 7.5 ounces (213g) plain flour
- • ½ tsp baking powder
- • ½ tsp salt
- • 1 tsp cinnamon
- • 8 oz (227g) raisins
- • 10 oz (284g) rolled oats
Preparation time 15mins
Cooking time 30mins
Preheat the oven to 175C
Cream the butter with the sugars, and then beat in the eggs one at a time.
Combine the flour, baking powder, salt and cinnamon, then mix into the butter/sugar/egg mixture.
Now mix in the raisins and oats.
Place balls the size of a large walnut onto a greased, non-stick baking tray (remember to allow room for them to spread!) and cook for about 15 minutes or until verly lightly browned. Cool for a couple of minutes on the baking sheet, and then transfer to a cooling rack.
The dough keeps well in the fridge for several days, so you can cook up a few cookies whenever you want them rather than the whole batch at once if you wish.
