Oatmeal Raisin Cookies

Super easy to make biscuits or cookies. Interesting bit of relatively useless information: the American word “cookie” comes from the Dutch word “koekje”.

The recipe is from a BBC cooking website, where comments list endless substitutes for raisins (such as cranberries, chopped apricots, chocolate chips, marshmallows, nuts, and all possible combinations of those).

Ingredients:

100g butter

100g caster sugar

2 tbsp honey

2 eggs

2 tsp cinnamon

100g wholemeal flour

2tsp baking powder

160g rolled oats

100g raisins

Heat oven to 180 C. Grease a large baking sheet

In a large bowl, mix butter and sugar together until soft, then beat in the honey

Add the egg and cinnamon and mix well

In another bowl, combine the flour, baking powder, oats and raisins and mix together before adding to the butter mixture.

Drop heaped spoonfuls of the cookie dough onto the baking sheet and bake for 10-12 minutes or until lightly golden.

Remove from the oven, they should be golden but will still seem a tiny bit soft to the touch. Let cool on the tray just enough to peel them off without burning your fingers and start eating.
