… my favourite type of cookies thus far. It’s a bit fussy (read: labour-intensive) to make but I think well worth the effort 🙂


Oatmeal cranberry cookies

210 g flour
210 g oatmeal
145 g butter/margarine, softened at room temperature
55 g brown sugar
90 g sugar
1/2 tsp salt
2 tbsp light syrup (or corn syrup)
55 g hazelnuts
55 g raisins
75 g dried cranberries
(1/2 dl water)

  • mix all the dry ingredients (flour, oatmeal, sugar, baking powder and salt) together; gradually add the butter, rubbing it into the flour mixture until the whole mixture resembles small breadcrumbs
  • add the syrup, hazelnuts and dried fruits into the flour mixture; mix together to form a dough (add the water a little at a time if the dough turns out too dry)
  • carefully roll the dough into sausage shapes about 5-7 cm in diameter; refrigerate the “sausages” for about 30 minutes
  • cut the sausages into pieces about 1 cm thick; place on baking trays lined with baking paper and bake in the oven at 180°C (preheated) for 10-15 minutes. Cool cookies on a wire rack. Serves around 20 big cookies.
