Oat and Raisin Cookies

These cookies are perfect for a quick snack in the afternoon. The inspiration of marinating the raisins before, came from the Patricia's blog and it's worth a lot to lose some minutes cooking them. They done delicious and makes a great pair with the cookies flavor and texture.

For raisins
100g raisins 
100ml rum
50ml orange juice
2 tbsp sugar

100g butter at room temperature
100g sugar
1 egg
Zest of 1 orange
1  1/2 cup flour
1 cup rolled oats 
1/2 tsp baking soda

1. Mix raisins with rum, orange juice and sugar and let to minimum heat for 20 minutes, occasionally stirring. Drain and let cool.

2. Preheat the oven to 350˚F. Grease a cookie sheet. 

3. Cream butter with sugar just until is pale and fluffy. Add egg and orange zest and beat well. Beat in flour, oats and baking soda just until is smooth. Fold in cooked and drained raisins.

4. In a floured surface roll out the dough and cut with a round cutter. Place on the cookie sheet leaving a small space between them, so the cookies can increase in size. Bake for about 15-20 minutes or until is lightly golden.

Serve: About 65 cookies.
