Since we moved to Canada (like it seems all Canadians) Tim Horton’s has become a regular coffee stop. Whilst my children (and my husband) prefer their donuts (the more chocolate and sprinkles the better), my favourite has to be their raisin and oat cookies.
This week I made my own.
For this cookie recipe you will need:
125g soft light brown sugar
150g butter (melted)
2 teaspoons milk
1 egg + 1 egg yolk (beaten)
1 teaspoon cinnamon
1 teaspoon mixed spice
½ teaspoon bicarbonate of soda
Makes approximately 16 cookies
- Pre-heat the oven to 170C (325F) Mark 3 and line 2 baking sheets with parchment.
- Measure the sugar into a bowl and add the melted butter. Beat until combined (I use my Kitchen Aid to do this, but it could be done by hand if you prefer).
- Add the milk and egg and beat well, until the mixture turns a pale colour.
- Fold in the flour, cinnamon, spice and bicarbonate of soda.
- Add the oats and raisins and gently mix into the dough.
- Divide the dough into approximately 16 pieces (more if you prefer smaller cookies). Roll each piece into a ball, place on the prepared baking sheet and gently pat down with the palm of your hand. Do not place them too close together as they increase quite a bit in size whilst cooking.
- Bake in the preheated oven for approximately 20 minutes (or until the edges have turned golden brown).
- Remove from the oven and allow to cool on a wire rack for 5 minutes.
- Try not to eat them all at once!
