I’m currently working in a preschool class. Every time the pupils have to perform any collective task they all sing it to the tune of Frere Jaques. Its slowly driving me around the twist. Not that that particular venture has anything to do with this post, I’m just a sucker for a pun.
In other, not such irrelevant news, here’s a recipe for raisin cookies. Its particularly lush because I soaked the raisins to prevent them burning in the oven.
4oz Brown sugar
2.5oz Caster sugar
6.75oz Plain flour
1 tsp Baking Powder
1/4 tsp Salt
Drop of Vanilla extract
6oz White chocolate chips
1. In a pan heat the butter until it has all melted.
2. Remove from the heat and whisk in both the sugars until no lumps remain.
3. Let the butter/ sugar mixture cool for 5 minutes before beating in the egg and vanilla extract.
4. Then, combine the dry ingredients and add them to the warm mix.
5. Once the mixture has cooled, add the chocolate chips and refrigerate.
6. When the dough has firmed up slightly, use a cookie scoop to create balls of dough, then freeze them.
7. Preheat the oven to 180C/ 350F. Line the cookie balls on the sheet and bake from frozen until the edges are golden brown. (About 10mins, but check after 8)
8. Allow cookies to cool for at least 10 minutes on the baking sheet before transferring to a cooling wrack.
