Another Cookie Weekend!

I've been cooking biscuits again I looked for a recipe from my “Fabulous Cookies” book only I didn't have all the ingredients for any of the recipes. So, I used the basis of one recipe and used a different type of sugar and instead of chocolate chips and vanilla essence used sultanas and cinnamon. 

To say it was successful would be an understatement; my second batch is cooing as I type. Here is the recipe in case you're in a biscuitty mood! 

  • 115g butter
  • 115g light brown sugar
  • 1 egg
  • 1tsp ground cinnamon
  • 150g self-raising flour
  • 50g porridge oats
  • 120g sultanas

Makes up to 20 (or fewer really big ones!)

  1. Cream the butter and sugar together. Add the egg and beat well.
  2. Sift flour into the bowl and fold it in with a metal spoon.
  3. Add oats and sultanas and mix well.
  4. Dollop the mixture onto greased baking trays leaving gaps for spreading.
  5. Cook on 15-20 mins gas mark 5 (bottom of my oven) until golden brown.
  6. Leave on baking tray for a few mins then transfer to a wire rack to cool. Or eat while still warm as the other half seems to enjoy doing!!
I've also been doing some hooking this weekend, but I'll post pictures of that later. Right now I'm off to eat more biscuits!
