Oatmeal raisin cookies

Whoever of you that know me, know my passion for cookies. On the streets of Shanghai is common to find people from XinJiang selling raisins and other dry fruits thus my idea of making oatmeal raisin cookies. For the oatmeal, I would not recommend you to go to CityShop, where they will charge you 90 kuai for a package of Oats, you should rather get any brand of oats that you can find at the Chinese grocery store, they are cheap (around 20 kuai) and I would say pretty good. Just pick the one with big flakes (traditional oats) rather than the quick one (small flakes).

Ingredients (for 18 cookies):

  • 2 cups oats – 180 克燕麦
