For Two Small Cookies...

Total Time
Prep 5 mins
Cook 12 mins

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.

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Preheat oven to 180 degrees.
  2. Cream butter and sugar together - don't bother using a mixer , I just used a teaspoon.
  3. Add vanilla.
  4. Mix in flour, muesli and salt. If the mixture gets dry , add the water.
  5. Add the raisins.
  6. 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.
  7. Bake for 8-10 minutes.
  8. 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!
