Baking Time | Chocolate and Raisin Cookies

Hello Lovelies!

I decided to bake some slightly healthier cookies than my usual double chocolate sugar calorie explosion and came up with a nice, very simple recipe for raisin and milk chocolate chip cookies!

Ingredients Needed;

  • 225g softened unsalted butter
  • 140g golden caster sugar
  • 1 egg
  • 280g plain all-purpose flour
  • 2 tsp vanilla extract
  • Splash of milk
  • Pinch of salt
  • 100g milk chocolate (cut into small chunks)
  • 100g raisins or sultanas

Method;

  • Pre-heat the oven to 180C and line a baking tray with baking parchment.
  • Cream together the butter and sugar in a mixer until pale and fluffy.
  • Add the egg yolk and mix well, then include the vanilla extract.
  • Mix in the dry ingredients, sifting in the flour in 3 stages to make the mixing process easier. Add a splash of milk to loosen the dough if it becomes too dry and difficult to mix.
  • Using a lower setting on the mixer, add in the milk chocolate chunks and raisins, making sure that they’re evenly distributed throughout the dough.
  • Once you’ve got your dough (try not to eat all of it raw like I do!), spoon medium sized round dollops onto the tray, spacing them evenly apart as they’ll spread when they’re baking.
  • Bake in the centre of the heated oven for around 15 minutes, until they start to turn golden around the edges.
  • Leave to cool for 5 minutes on the tray before transferring onto a wire rack, then store in an airtight container for up to 5 days- if you can stand to ration them for that long!

These cookies are so gorgeously moist and crumbly at the same time- completely more-ish and delicious. They’re the perfect accompaniment to any afternoon tea and the raisins definitely make this recipe feel a lot healthier than it probably is; I didn’t feel guilty for eating two while writing this post in the slightest!

Happy Hump Day!
