Oat and Raisin Cookies

After my previous success with Ed Kimber’s Financiers, I decided to try another, and after flicking through the recipes found some cookies which also contained two ingredients which I know my Mum had sitting in her cupboard for a while. Next time I popped home for the evening I took Ed with me and got ready to bake some lovely Oat and Raisin cookies!
This is a completely different and slightly more involved recipe than my Oat and Fruit Cookies which are perfect if you don’t have glucose hanging around!

Number of servings: 20

See Detailed Nutrition Info on


  • 175g raisins
  • 280g plain flour
  • 1/8 tsp bicarb
  • 1/4 tsp baking powder
  • 1/2 tsp salt
  • 30g milk powder
  • 225g unsalted butter at toom temperature
  • 125g granulated sugar
  • 135g light brown sugar
  • 60ml liquid glucose
  • 1 large egg
  • 40g white chocolate chopped
  • 95g porridge oats


  1. Line two large baking trays with baking parchment, as you can see below my trays are small and I had to do a few batches. Put your raisins in a small bowl and soak with boiling water for 10 minutes. Drain the water and set aside. Preheat the oven to 180'c
  2. Sift the flour, bicarb, baking powder, salt and milk powder into a medium bowl and set aside.
  3. In a mixer beat the butter, sugar and glucose together until smooth and combined. Beat in the egg and then add the flour mixture until just combined. Fold in the raisins chocolate and oats.
  4. Using your hands or an ice cream scoop, form balls of dough and space out on a baking tray. Chill for 15 minutes then bake the cookies in your preheated oven for 15 minutes or until the edges are golden. Cool on the tray and then move to wire racks to cool completely

Let me know how yours turn out, or if you have any other uses for milk powder/liquid glucose. 
Do you have Ed Kimbers book? Do you have any recipe recommendations for me?
