I had a major craving for cookies last week and so decided to have a go at making some! I love all flavours, but my favourites have to be chocolate chip and oat & raisin. These cookies were made from the same batter and then split just before baking so they’re super easy!
For the batter:
- 220g butter
- 175g caster sugar
- 175g demerara sugar
- 350g plain flour, sifted
- 1 tsp bicarbonate of soda
- 1 tsb salt
- 2 eggs
For the chocolate chip cookies:
- 180g dark chocolate, cut into chunks
For the oat and raisin cookies:
- 75g raisins
- 150g oats
Makes approximately 16 cookies, 8 of each flavour
- Preheat oven to 190°C / 170°C fan / Gas mark 5
- In a bowl, combine the butter and sugar until creamy and beat in the eggs
- Mix together the flour, bicarbonate of soda and salt in a separate bowl
- Gradually fold the flour mixture into the wet ingredients
- Separate the batter into 2 equal portions
- Add the chocolate chunks to one mix and the raisins and oats to the other
- To bake the cookies, use your hands to break of small balls of the cookie mix and then press them into circles on the tray (they should measure roughly 5cm in thickness and 2cm in height). Be careful to leave a good amount of space around each cookie otherwise they will spread into each other! I put about 6 cookies on each baking tray.
- Bake in the oven for about 10 minutes and then serve! Easy peasy!
