Hazelnut and Raisin Cookies

Today I'm celebrating 100 followers! Thank you everybody for reading and following my blog!! It makes me incredible happy every time I see that someone has decided to become a new follower:-) You're the best!!! I also want to thank you for your lovely comments!

I've made cookies as it felt like it was a while ago. I found this, Hazelnut and Raisin Cookie recipe in a magazine and it was exactly the kind of cookie I wanted to try. It's soft inside, but yet crunchy from the hazelnuts. I was a little disappointed though that they didn't taste anything of the oats. Next time, I will add more oats, and reduce the amount of flour. 

They are best eaten the same day. I had one the day after, and it was still a nice cookie, but not nearly as good as when freshly baked along with a glass of cold milk:-)

Hazelnut and Raisin Cookies, 30 pcs
125 grams butter, softened
1 tsp vanilla sugar
2 1/2 dl sugar (250ml)
2 eggs
5 dl flour (500ml)
1 tsp baking powder
2 dl porridge oats (200ml)
1 dl hazelnuts, roughly chopped (100ml)
1 dl raisins (100ml)

Preheat the oven at 175 degrees C.

Mix butter, vanilla sugar and sugar until fluffy. Whisk and add one egg at a time.

Combine in a separate bowl, flour, baking powder, oats. Add to the sugar mixture and combine well. Add hazelnuts and raisins and combine.

Roll the dough into balls and place on a oven paper covered baking sheet. Flatten the cookies with a knife.

Bake in the oven for about 12-14 minutes or until the cookies has a nice colour.

Let the cookies cool a bit before serving. My suggestion is to serve the cookies with cold milk.
