So the clock's have gone back an hour and the evenings have just as suddenly, become that little bit darker, and that little bit colder. We are starting to see the appearance of "dragon breath", my little ones call it, with every exhale in the cooler outdoors. This time of year seems to really bring out the inner baker in me. I bake more often than I normally would, the baking tins are a forever alternating splendour of culinary delights.
The usual Tribe's favourites of flapjacks, gooey chewy cookies and school cake, are joined by an autumn crumble topped banana loaf, carrot cake muffins and spiced oatmeal cookies to name a few. Today I am going to share my spiced cookie recipe with you all. Soft chewy, cinnamon infused cookie goodness, perfect with a pumpkin spiced latte and paired with a good book and some cosy socks, sat in front of the fire.
I'm giving you an easy to follow recipe, that the children will love giving a hand with. The recipe makes roughly 20 nice sized cookies of pure yumminess that can be enjoyed by the whole family or beautifully stacked in 5s and gift wrapped in baking paper and twine to be given as gifts.
100g Light soft brown sugar
25g Granulated sugar
1Tsp Vanilla Extract
90g Plain flour
Line two baking trays with baking paper.
1) Cream together butter & Sugars
2) Add egg, vanilla, cinnamon & raisins. Mix all the ingredients together thoroughly.
3) Add plain Flour & Oats. And thoroughly mix to create your finished cookie dough.
4) Using a large teaspoon for size. Scoop a portion of dough using your teaspoon and roll in between your hands to create a ball shape. Place your balls evenly spaced on your baking tray to allow for some spreading during cooking. Flatten each ball slightly and bake in the oven for 10-12 minutes until the edges are just turning golden brown. Remove from oven and allow to cool before enjoying. If you're impatient like me, these can be eaten warm too and are delicious!
On a personal note this is one of my favourite recipes to bake for myself, to fill my own treat tins. Not only do they taste like autumn/winter cram packed into a delicious cookie, but they're relatively low in calories too! So as always, I have provided you lovely people with the nutritional information below.
As with all my recipes, please feel free to send me pictures of your bakes. I absolutely love seeing my recipes being brought to life in other people's kitchens and enjoyed by other people's Tribes. Stay safe and much love, Steph x
