      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.
