Yesterday I was struck with a baking urge but didn't want lots of cake/cookies/muffins lying around the house, waiting to fatten me up. So I made just two cookies! The whole recipe can made in a teacup (I used a plastic one). Feel free to double ,triple , quadruple the recipe without changing the time and temperature - I didn't change it from the recipe I adapted this from, and that was for 100 cookies.
- 1 1⁄2 teaspoons butter, room temperature
- 3 teaspoons sugar (I used red)
- 1 1⁄2 tablespoons self-raising flour
- 6 raisins
- 3 tablespoons muesli
- 1 teaspoon water (optional)
- 1 drop vanilla essence
- salt (3 grains)
- Preheat oven to 180 degrees.
- Cream butter and sugar together - don't bother using a mixer , I just used a teaspoon.
- Add vanilla.
- Mix in flour, muesli and salt. If the mixture gets dry , add the water.
- Add the raisins.
- Roll into two small balls and place two inches apart on a piece of baking paper (a tray seemed too big). Flatten slightly with fork.
- Bake for 8-10 minutes.
- Leave for two minutes,then cool.
These were really great made exactly as written - except be sure to flatten the balls down to a cookie shape. I made them a few times, and they didn't flatten on their own. Also, the cookies weren't that small... ;-) For my first attempt, I did it as written, except since my muesli had lots of fruit in it, I subbed chocolate chips for the raisins. I baked these as balls. Two things - they never flattened, and they didn't cook through. And, surprisingly, I did not like the flavor of the chocolate chips in there at all. (Although, it might be good with oats subbed for the muesli also.) I also tried a batch with cinnamon - also good, but not better, IMHO, than the plain ones. Good recipe, NOOBchef, plus GREAT concept!
I have not tried this yest, but i loved the idea.. and yes I will be making it! I am going to try and sub the museli with oats and the raising with choc chips!!! Oh and thanks for the advice about the mixer...hahaha
