Oatmeal Raisin Cookies


How about some cookies? These are just right - perfectly crisp on the outside, but chewy and soft inside. And delicious. Just delicious.

Oatmeal Raisin Cookies

225 g butter, softened
220 g brown sugar
130 g white sugar
2 eggs
245 g flour
175 g rolled oats
1/2 tsp salt
1 tsp baking soda
1 tsp cinnamon
1/2 tsp cardamon
200 g raisins

Start by beating the butter with both sugars until very fluffy and well combined. Add the eggs, and keep beating until smooth.

In a separate bowl, mix flour, oats, salt, baking soda, raisins, cinnamon and cardamon. Add this to the cookie batter and mix until combined.

Chill for at least one hour. Use a cookie scoop or your hands to shape balls - I make mine pretty small, about the size of a small walnut. Place on a cookie sheet (I could fit 12) and bake at 175°C for about 8 minutes.

I also freeze the un-cooked cookie-scoops, and bake directly from frozen. In that case, you might want to add a minute or two to the cooking time.
