Oatmeal and Raisin Cookies for the Clients

In baking, Bill Granger, cookies on January 25, 2013 at 4:38 am

Cooking in a household of one poses a slight ‘problem’. Especially with baking, because you can’t just ‘halve’ the recipe. Baking is an exact science – reducing the ingredients according to the serving you want doesn’t work.

Well, I think I’ve found the perfect taste testers for my cooking experiment, and earned a few brownie points along the way. I served this to the clients when they came to the office for a meeting. The clients and suits almost finished the whole Tupperware of cookies, but then again, the meeting lasted the whole day. They could’ve just been starving!

These cookies have less ‘guilt’ because of the oats and raisins. The brown sugar gives them a mellow sweetness, not the toothache-inducing sweetness of white sugar. As for the butter, well, I never apologize for butter.

Shopping list: eggs

From the pantry: butter, soft brown sugar, oats, raisins, vanilla extract, baking powder, salt

Hardware: baking tray, baking paper, flour sieve, egg beater, oven

Can I do it?: Definitely. One of the easiest cookie recipes I’ve tried. You don’t need delicate hands too because these cookies are earthy rather than pretty. Just roll the mixture into balls and flatten them with a fork.
