Bailey’s Oat and Raisin Cookies

This is a basic Oat and Raisin Cookie recipe from Rachel Allen’s Book called ‘Bake’. I’ve made them several times, but I wanted to experiment with flavours.

Here is my Baileys, Oat and Raisin Cookie recipe

110g (4oz) butter, softened

110g(4oz) caster sugar

110g(4oz) soft brown sugar

1 egg

2 tbsp water

1 tsp Baileys Original

2 tbsp Baileys Original (add this to the Raisins/mixed dried fruit to soak)

250g (9oz) porridge oats

110g (4oz) self raising flour

110g (4oz) raisins or mixed dried fruit.

1) Add the 2 tbsp Bailey’s Original to the Raisins/Mixed Dried fruit and leave for about an hour to infuse.

2) Cream the butter and sugar in a large bowl until the mixture is light and fluffy

3) Add the egg, water and 1 tsp Baileys Original and whisk again until all are combined.

4) Add the Oats,Raisins/Mixed dried fruit and flour to a dough consistancy.

5) Using your hands, roll the dough into walnut sized balls and place on a baking tray with parchment. Press the dough down slightly.

6) Bake in an oven at 180C (350F ) Gas mark 4 for around 15 mins until light and golden.

Dust with Caster Sugar as soon as they come out of the oven.

These cookies are soft, squidgy and very moorish. Enjoy.
