Crispy fruity cookies with a buttery texture.

Top Review by ImPat

Made a half batch which yielded 22 cookies though a little thicker than the 1/4" (used a bread knife but had to cut a little thicker as they were crumbling - had rolled into a rectangular log shape (as against a round one)). Took 15 minutes the bake at 175C in a fan forced oven. Also used a sultana and apricot mix instead of raisins. Took to the DS's music recreation group and it was yummies all round. Thank you Lorie.

  10. Slice chilled dough into 1/4 inch thick rounds and either place on parchment on a cookie sheet or on an ungreased baking sheet.
  11. Bake for 13-15 minutes or until firm and golden around edges (time may vary with how thick or cold they are).
