I found this recipe in a baking book that I borrowed from the library. This is a very simple recipe, but very yummy. The best thing is, that you can keep the dough in the fridge for a few days and just bake a few off each day--great for unexpected visitors or if you just fancy some warm freshly baked cookies!
- 4 ounces unsalted butter
- 4 ounces granulated sugar
- 4 ounces light muscovado sugar
- 1 large egg
- 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
- 7 ounces self raising flour
- 5 ounces chocolate chips
- 2 ounces chopped hazelnuts or 2 ounces walnuts
- 2 ounces raisins
- Preheat the oven to Gas 4/180°C/350°F Line and grease two baking sheets. Put the butter and sugars in a bowl and beat together until light and fluffy. Add the egg and vanilla and beat until combined.
- Add the flour, chocolate chips, nuts and raisins and mix until just blended.
- Place teaspoonfuls of the dough, spaced well apart, onto the baking sheets. Bake for 15 minutes until golden brown.
These are awesome cookies! I made them pretty much exactly as the recipe stated, and got 24 cookies. They smell absolutely out of this world while baking! I used brown sugar for the muscovado sugar, and golden raisins. Walnuts were my nut of choice. DH just nipped back into the kitchen for a couple more cookies... and he doesn't normally do that!

Noo you have another winner of a recipe here! Because I could not find light muscovado sugar - I read the cooking dictionary here and used a darker brown sugar in it's place so I'd get that molasses flavor. I did omit the raisins - my kids do not like raisins and added a few more chocolate chips in their place and a few more nuts. A nice crispy texture which is perfect for dipping into milk (or coffee if you are me! :) ). I made all the cookies at one time so I'd have some for lunches this week at school.

Can I please give these wonderful cookies more than just 5 stars?! They are amazing! So quick and easy to put together and so tasty! I used more raisins instead of chocolate and added some rolled oats also. Because of all the sweetnes from the raisins I reduced the sugar by half. That was perfect for me. I shaped them like little drops and baked them for 12 minutes, which made them nicely brown and crisp on the outside. OH SO TASTY! I dont know why but mine tasted like peanuts even though I didnt use any. ;) Thanks so much for sharing, Noo! I will most certainly make these soon again! Made for 1-2-3-Hit-Wonders February 2009.
