Corn meal raisins cookies

I found this recipe from the lazy chef blog, I thought I will give it a try. Wow , It is a nice recipe. The cookies is so chewy because of the raisins,and pineapple, the corn meal make it crunchy. I also put dried pineapple in it.

170 g butter, softened

135 g white sugar

1 egg

190 g all-purpose flour

60 g cornmeal

1 teaspoon baking powder

1/4 teaspoon salt, Grated rind of 1 orange(about 1 teaspoon- 1 1/2 teaspoon)

70 g raisins

What to do:In a large bowl, blend butter and sugar until creamy.

Add egg and beat well.In another bowl, stir together flour, cornmeal, baking powder and salt; gradually add to butter mixture.

Add orange rind and blend thoroughly.

Stir in the raisins. Form dough into ball, wrap tightly in plastic wrap, and chill until firm, about 1 hour. Scoop out 1 tablespoon of dough and roll into a ball between your palms. Place 1 inch apart on lightly greased cookie sheet, then flatten slightly. Bake in 350 degree F (175 degrees C) oven for 15-19 minutes or until edges are golden.

Store in airtight container.


1. You may reduce sugar to about 110g if you do not want it to be too sweet. The original was 150grams.

2. The time required for the baking is dependent on the thickness and size of your cookie. Mine was rather large and thick, so it took a bit longer. Adjust accordingly.
