In Lieu of Hari Raya Puasa yesterday which falls on Sunday, today is another Holiday here in Singapore. My girls are home as school is closed.
Last nite we had SUBWAY sandwiches for dinner and my girls said the oatmeal & raisin cookie they ate was nice. I dun understand what had made those soft and TOO-SWEETENED!! cookies soooooooo attracted to my girls??? so this morning, I decided to make my own.
Tessa wanted her cookies in Heartz & Starz shapes... so I accommodated with her request :D I'm glad my fussy Tessa had at least 15 hearts and stars cookies this morning for breakfast! ;P
Similar to my chocolate chip cookies posting, I just replaced the chocolate chips & walnuts with instant oats & raisin.
Simple Cookie Ingredients & instructions as below:-
- 350g plain flour
- 1tsp baking soda
- 1tsp salt
- sieve the above dry ingredients altogether
- 250g butter (Fairprice or SCS Brand)
- 120g brown sugar
- 1 tbs vanillin powder
Cream the above using electric mixer till fluffy. Combine the dry ingredients to the creamed, wet ingredients until just blended, then stir in
- 120g Raisin
- 120g Instant Oats (I use Quakers' Brand)
Wrap the above dough with cling wrap and refrigerate for half an hour.
Preheat oven to 180 d.c. and Roll out dough to about 0.5cm thickness, cut out to your desired shape; Bake on ungreased baking sheet @ 180 d.c. for 15mins; Remove from oven and leave on tray to cool for at least 5mins before transferring them to the cooling rack. Make sure cookies are completely cooled before keeping them in air-tight container for storage.
