I was really craving some Oatmeal and Raisin Cookies today, so I decided to bake some! They were really easy, and only required five steps!

The heat I used to cook everything in the recipe was 180°C (350°F & Gas Mark 4)

YOU WILL NEED:

1. MIX THE BUTTER AND SUGAR

IMG_0474

Mix the butter and sugar together in the bowl until well combined.

2. ADD THE OATS AND RAISINS

IMG_0483

I used a wooden spoon to mix my ingredients together, because the mixture was too thick for an electric whisk.

3. SPOON ONTO A GREASED BAKING TRAY

IMG_0489

Make sure not to make the cookies too big, or they won’t cook properly. Also, be sure to flatten them out slightly before baking.

4. BAKE FOR AROUND 9 MINUTES

IMG_0490

9 minutes is only a guideline, so don’t worry if your cookies  take longer to bake. Just make sure they look golden brown around the edges and slightly undercooked on the top.

5. ENJOY

IMG_0491

Leave to cool for around ten minutes and enjoy!

Please let me know if you enjoyed this post, and I’ll continue to make similar ones in the future!
