2015-11-24 12.28.53

At this time of the year, baking supplies are aplenty and on offer. I couldn’t resist temptation and baked my favourite kind of cookies: oatmeal raisin cookies. They are Subway-dupes, which means these cookies are chewy, sweet, filled with plump raisins and smell of cinnamon. Oh, the baking aroma… it filled my kitchen with Christmas.

Makes about 36 cookies

  • 225g butter, softened
  • 160g white sugar
  • 160g brown sugar
  • 1 tsp vanilla essence
  • 2 eggs, 65g each
  • 190g all-purpose flour
  • 1 tsp ground cinnamon
  • 1 tsp salt
  • 1 tsp baking soda
  • 230g oats
  • 100g raisins

In a large mixing bowl, cream butter, white & brown sugars until light and fluffy. Add in vanilla essence and eggs, mix until combined.

In a separate bowl, combine flour, ground cinnamon, salt and baking soda evenly. Add dry ingredients to wet ingredients and stir gently. Add in raisins and oats, mix to ensure raisins and oats are well distributed. Chill dough in fridge for at least 30 mins.

Preheat oven to 175 deg C. Place tablespoons of dough onto prepared baking sheets, about 2 inches apart. Bake for 10-12 mins.

Cookies will seem soft and undercooked, but will set upon cooling.
