    Makes: 12 raisin cookies

    • 75g ( 2 1/2 oz) soft butter or margarine
    • 75g (2 1/2 oz) light brown soft sugar

    Prep:30min  ›  Cook:15min  ›  Ready in:45min 

    1. Preheat the oven to 180 C / Gas 4. Grease two baking trays.
    2. Into a mixing bowl combine the soft butter or margarine and brown sugar and beat well. Stir in the vanilla extract followed by the flour and fruit or peanut butter and mix thoroughly; now you should have a doughy sort of mixture. Shape them or form them into balls and place onto prepared baking trays.
    3. Bake in the preheated oven for 15 minutes until golden brown. Remove from the oven and allow to cool on a cooling rack before serving. Enjoy your cookies!


    I recommend for people with a sweeter tooth to go for marshmallows or mini marshmallows in addition to or instead of the fruit.

    I have made these twice now. The 1st time they were good, but a bit dry. Just now I used half peanut butter and half mixed fruit & they are better. BTW I used coconut sugar & wholewheat flour to make them more healthy  -  13 Jul 2017
