Oatmeal and raisin cookies
When I received a packet of oatmeal, I was really perplexed. I didn't know what to do with a 1kg of oatmeal. In my memory, I didn't think oatmeal was delicious at all... so I decided to use them for other purpose.
Yesterday, my colleague bought some Quaker cookies and they were delicious! I decided to try using the Quaker recipe even though my oatmeal were not Quaker brand.
Here is the recipe
1 cup and 6 tablespoon of butter, softened -I used 195gm butter (SCS)
3/4 cup firmly packed brown sugar
1/2 cup granulated sugar (I used caster sugar)
1 teaspoon vanilla
1 and 1/2 cup of plain flour
1 teaspoon baking soda
1 teaspoon ground cinnamon
1/2 teaspoon salt
3 cups of Quaker Oats (quick or old fashioned, uncooked) I used Captain Oats quick cook oatmeal
1 cup raisin
- Heat oven to 180C .In a large bowl, beat butter and sugars on medium speed of electric mixer until creamy. I used an electric hand mixer.
- Add eggs and vanilla and beat well.
- Add plain flour, baking soda, cinnamon and salt, mix well.
- Add oats and raisins, mix well.
- Drop dough by rounded tablespoonfuls onto ungreased cookie trays. Please space out as the cookies will spread during baking ( I will recommend to line the trays - I had to use my dough cutter to remove cookies and some broke)
- Bake using the middle tray for up to 15 minutes. Original says 8-10 minutes but they were soft. Cool 1 minute on the trays, remove to wire rack to cool completely. Store tightly covered.
Most recipes online says cookies can be stored for up to 1 week. Happy baking!!!
I used this brand of oatmeal
