Raisin Cookies

Happy New Year 2013 once again..

As mentioned earlier, cookies were my weakest point, I couldnt get them right.. The problem which I realised was an uneven shapes of cookies and hence not good results... So this time I rolled the dough in a log and chilled it in refrigerator overnight. Then the next day cut it in equal size shapes and baked it in preheated oven and the results were amazing...


1 cup (226 gms) Butter
3/4 th cup Sugar
1 large Egg
1 1/2 tsp Pure Vanilla Extract
2 2/3 cups (345 gms) Flour (Maida)
1/2 tsp Baking Powder
3/4 cups chopped Raisins


Beat butter and sugar until light and fluffy (for around 3-4 minutes) using electric hand mixer. Add vanilla and egg and beat again until properly incorporated..

In a seperate bowl sift the flour and mix it along with baking powder and whisk till incorporated.. And add this mixture in to the butter mixture and mix it using wooden spoon until it becomes a dough. Use your hands if you find it bit difficult to use the spoon like I did. Divide the dough in three balls and try to roll them into a nice smooth log and roll them in cling film and let it refrigerate overnight..
Next day line a baking sheet and preheat the oven at 190 degrees celcius. Cut the cookie dough in an equal size 1/2 inch thick squares and  bake it for 10 to 12 minutes. Let the cookies cool completely before you store in an airtight container.
