Raisin Cookies

Raisin cookies are soft and chewy unlike regular cookies, which are hard and crispy. These are simple to make - just beat all the ingredients in a bowl for a minute, and stir in the raisins. The recipe calls for dark raisins, but I used the golden ones and it turned out great!


2 cups maida/all purpose flour
2 tsp baking powder
1/4 tsp salt
1/2 tsp ground cinnamon
1 cup light brown sugar
10 tbsp/~150 gms unsalted butter, softened
1 egg
1/4 cup milk
1 tsp vanilla extract
1/2 cup raisins


Preheat oven to 350 degrees F (180 degrees C). Line baking sheets with parchment paper.

Beat together the flour, baking powder, salt, and ground cinnamon. Add the brown sugar, softened butter, egg, milk, and vanilla extract and beat for one minute. Add the raisins and beat until mixed well.

Drop the batter by heaping teaspoonfuls onto the baking sheet, spacing a couple of inches apart. Bake the cookies for about 12 minutes. Remove from oven and transfer the cookies to a wire rack to cool.

Makes about 3 dozen cookies
