Raisin Cookies

I am sure many of you would have tried oatmeal and raisin cookies. But how about just raisin cookies? I decided to make raisin cookies for a change and I really liked the way they turned out, as it was soft and chewy. The recipe is from my favourite website called joyofbaking.com. I have tried baking many of her recipes and they all turn out perfect. You should try making these cookies as they are very easy to make and tasty too 😉.


  • All-purpose flour – 260 gm
  • Baking powder – 2 tsp
  • Salt – 1/4 tsp
  • Unsalted butter, at room temperature – 170 gm
  • Light brown sugar – 180 gm
  • Egg, at room temperature – 1 large
  • Vanilla extract – 1 tsp
  • Milk – 3 to 4 tbsp
  • Dark raisins – 125 gm


  • Preheat oven to 375 degrees F (190 degrees C). Butter or line two baking sheets with parchment paper. 
  • In a separate bowl, whisk together the flour, baking powder, and salt. 
  • In the bowl of your electric mixer (or with a hand mixer), beat the butter until smooth and creamy.
  • Add the sugar and beat until soft and fluffy (about 2 minutes).
  • Beat in egg and vanilla extract. Scrape down the sides of the bowl as needed. 
  • Add the flour mixture to the batter and beat until incorporated.
  • Add enough milk to make a soft batter.
  • Then add the raisins and beat until combined.
  • For each cookie, drop about one tablespoon of batter onto the prepared baking sheet, spacing the cookies about 2 inches (5 cm) apart.
  • Bake the cookies for about 12 – 14 minutes, or until the tops of the cookies are still soft with just a touch of color, yet the edges are golden brown.
  • Remove from oven and transfer the cookies to a wire rack to cool.
