Super Easy Cinnamon & Raisin Cookies Recipe

Last week I did some baking with the kids and one of the treats we made were the most delicious cookies I think I've ever tasted. They were so easy to make and the kids loved them, plus I have a top tip to help your cookies get that yummy softness in the centre but still stay crispy around the edges and also get that perfect round shape.

75g (3oz) Flora Buttery
55g (2oz) caster sugar
100g (3oz) soft brown sugar
1 medium egg
1 tsp vanilla essence
100g (3oz) raisins
175g (6oz) self raising flour sieved together with
2 tsp ground cinnamon and
0.5 tsp bicarbonate of soda


Pre-heat the oven to 190°C/170°C fan or gas mark 5

Place all the ingredients in a mixing bowl and beat together with a wooden spoon until well mixed.

Brush baking sheets with Flora, take spoons of the mixture roll them into balls and place them on the baking sheets evenly spaced apart. Rolling the mixture into balls is my top tip on how to get the perfect cookie bake and appearance.

Bake on the middle shelf of the oven for 8-10 minutes and cool on a wire tray.

It's a super simple recipe but it makes amazing cookies, you can find this recipe and lots more fun recipes for kids at
