Rolled Oats and Raisin Cookies

To keep the lads fed at the Lakehouse in Takapuna Woodsculpture Live I baked some Rachel Allen Cookies which went down a treat and spurred them on to further action.


110 gram sof butter ( softened)
110 grams of caster sugar
110 grams of  soft light brown sugar
1 egg
2 tablespoons of water
1 teaspoon of vanilla extract
250 grams of rolled oats
110 grams of self raising flour
1 level teaspoon of salt
110 grams  of raisins/ chocolate chips

Heat the oven to 180C
Cream the butter until soft and then add the sugars and continue to beat until the mixture is light and fluffy.
Add the egg, water and vanilla extract while still beating. Reduce the speed and gently mix in the oats, flour, salt and raisins/chocolate chips to form a dough.
Using you hands roll the dough into walnut sized balls and place slightly apart on two baking trays ( no need to grease or line)
Bake in the oven for 15-35 minutes until light golden brown but still slightly soft in the centre.
Allow to cool on the trays for a minute before transferring to a wire rack to cool,
