cornflake & raisin cookies

These delicious little cookies are one of the things i remember eating from my childhood. I do love cookies with raisins, bread with raisins....porridge with raisins.... and for some strange reason i had a hankering for them today and luckily enough had all the ingredients too!!

Look at that scrumptious cookie dough all full of raisins and yumminess!!

OK. Now for the recipe. (If you are reading this Jane i rushed over to put this on here after reading your comment on Flickr!!! hehehe)

Cornflake & Raisin Cookies - (i made 55 cookies from this recipe)

2/3 cup brown sugar
1/2 cup butter
1 tsp vanilla
2 eggs
1 3/4 cup plain flour
2 tsp baking powder
1 1/2 cups raisins
1 1/2 cups crushed cornflakes

Cream together the butter, sugar and vanilla until light and creamy, pale in colour.
Slowly mix in the eggs, then flour and raisins. I usually mix the raisins in the flour first, makes for easier mixing.

Roll the dough into 1 inch balls and evenly coat in cornflake crumbs.

Bake at 180C for 10-12 minutes, they don't brown very much, at 10 minutes mine were ready with golden bottoms!


  1. Ooh, rolled in cornflakes? Interesting! I love raisins too :D

    (Now hurry up and finish the recipe for those Greek meatballs!!! Haha)

  2. Haha! Will do! Just gotta sit down and DO IT!! =)

    You should try these cookies, they are pretty yummy! I put extra raisins in, cos i didn't think 1 cup was enough really!
