Foody Thursday – Honey Oatmeal Cookies

Recipe from the famous "Pastry Chef", by famous Bo Friberg. Wording slightly modified to make it a bit shorter. These cookies were part of my "Cookie Drive" this year



540 g soft unsalted butter
225 g sugar
255 g dark raisins
225 g rolled oats
1 tsp vanilla extract (I used 1 packet of vanilla sugar)
255 g honey – this is about 3/4 cup
1 tsp baking soda
595 g bread flour – this is about 4 cups

1. Beat butter and sugar, add raisins, oats, vanilla and honey. Mix well until combined

2. Sift baking soda and flour, add to the mixture

3. Divide dough into 4 equal pieces, roll out each piece into a rope about 40 cm long, refrigerate until firm

4. Cut each rope into 20 pieces. (I made more pieces – don't like huge cookies)

5. Place the slices, staggered, cut side down on a cookie sheet lined with baking paper. (I did not use paper – have really good non-stick cookie sheets from Canadian Tire, bought on sale for $5 a piece, yay!)

6. Use a fork to flatten and mark cookies. Bake at 190 C (375 F) until golden – about 15 min.

7. Hide them really well as they get consumed way too fast!
