Raisin Cookies




I peeked into Stephanie Jaworski's Joy Of Baking webpage to look for another cookie recipe for the resort's nightly turn down treat and found this. These raisin-packed cookies are soft and chewy. They make a great snack so anyone can enjoy them with a cup of tea or coffee or even with milk before bedtime.

Raisin cookie:

2 cups (260 grams) all purpose flour
2 teaspoons baking powder
1/4 teaspoon salt
1/2 teaspoon ground cinnamon
1 cup (210 grams) light brown sugar
12 tablespoons (170 grams) unsalted butter, softened
1 large egg
1/4 cup (60 ml) milk
1 teaspoon pure vanilla extract
1 cup (125 grams) dark raisins

Procedure:
Preheat oven to 190 C (375 F)  Line two baking sheets with non stick baking paper. 

In the bowl of your electric mixer, mix together  flour, baking powder, salt, and ground cinnamon. Add the brown sugar, softened butter, egg, milk, and vanilla extract and beat for one minute. Be sure to scrape the sides of bowl when needed. Add the raisins and beat until incorporated.

Drop  heaping teaspoonfuls of batter onto the prepared baking sheet, a couple of inches apart. Bake the cookies for about 8 -10 minutes or until  the top are turning pale golden and the edges golden brown. Remove from oven and transfer the cookies to a wire rack to cool.



Enjoy!
