- 200g unsalted butter
- 150g granulated sugar
- 150g light muscovado sugar
- 200g finely milled porridge oats (or Ready-Brek like cereal)
- 200g plain flour
- 2tsp vanilla extract
- 60g Unsalted Pistachios
- 200g White Chocolate – broken into chunks
- 200g frozen raspberries
- 2 eggs
- Pinch of Salt
- Preheat the oven to 180C/350F/Gas Mark 4 and line two baking sheets with greaseproof paper.
- Pop the butter, light muscovado sugar and granulated sugar into a bowl. I always sift my light muscovado sugar when I add it to recipes as it does have a tendency to clump together. Cream the butter and sugars together until soft and light. Beat in the eggs one at a time, alongside the vanilla extract.
- Roughly chop the pistachios until you have irregular sized rubble. Break the white chocolate into chunks about the size of a finger nail and through all into the butter-sugar mix. Stir together to evenly distribute.
- Mill 200g of porridge oats in a spice/coffee mill to resemble ground almonds– or use 200g of a Ready-Brek like cereal. Sift this over the buttery mix with 1tsp of baking powder and the plain flour. Stir thoroughly to combine – forming a stiff dough in the process. Finally, tip in the frozen raspberries – slowly stirring them through the dough to evenly distribute. It doesn’t matter if some blend into the dough – but do try and keep some whole berries if you can to provide a juicy burst to the finished cookies.
- Spoon out walnut-sized balls of the dough and roll with the palms of your hands before placing on the prepared baking sheets. The cookies will spread during cooking so leave a gap between the balls. Press down of the top of each cookie ball with the back of a teaspoon before popping in the oven to bake for around 15 minutes.
- When the cooking time is up, remove the trays from the oven and allow to cool slightly on the side for about 5 minutes. After this time, carefully lift each cookie off the trays and place on a rack to fully cool down.
- Store the finished cookies in an airtight tin.
