This is called making cookies by the all-in-one method. Usually the ingredients are combined in a bowl and beaten thoroughly, either by hand or in a food processor. Other ingredients, such as dried fruit and nuts are stirred in after mixing the cookie dough.
The following easy cookie recipe is a tasty, filling treat which has the addition of raisins to give it that natural sweetness.
Preheat the oven to 190°C / 375°F and line two baking sheets with baking paper.
Sift the flour, baking powder and salt together into a large mixing bowl. Add the sugar, margarine, egg and vanilla essence and beat with a wooden spoon until well combined. This can also be done in a food processor. Gently stir in the raisins.
Drop large tablespoons of the mixture onto the baking trays, being sure to space them about 2 inches apart to allow room for spreading during baking.
Bake in the oven for 15 minutes or until golden brown. Remove from the oven and leave on the trays for a few minutes before transferring them to a wire rack to cool completely.
This mixture will make about 24 cookies.
In this instance it is okay to use margarine instead of butter.
Make sure the butter is soft enough to mix easily.
If mixing in a food processor take care not to over-process. Process only until ingredients are combined.
Add the raisins after mixture has been processed.
