Oatmeal Cookies

Hi! So today's recipe is this delicious soft oatmeal cookies that is quite easy to make. This is not the type of cookie that you can shape the dough with cookie cutter, because when it's not cold, it melts.

3 cups cooking oats
1 cup (250gr) butter
1.5 cups white sugar
2 cups self raising flour (or 2 cups plain flour + 1 tsp baking soda)
2 eggs
3-5 tbsp honey
approx 1/4 - 1/3 cup raisins (you can add more or less depending on your taste, you can change it with chocolate chips too)
pinch of salt
15-18 almonds, chop coarsely

How to:
1. Soften the butter, then cream it together with sugar (pour the sugar gradually).
2. Crack the eggs, put in honey and raisins, also a pinch of salt, stir well.
3. Add the cooking oats gradually while mixing it. Mix well.
4. Add the flour gradually. Mix well.
5. Cover the batter with plastic wrap tightly (Until the plastic touches the batter completely).
6. Chill in fridge and leave it for at least 1 hour.
7. Spoon the batter and shape it into a flat round shape (or a ball, they're gonna melt and becomes round anyway).
8. Sprinkle the top of the raw cookie with chopped almonds
9. Bake in 200 degrees Celcius for 12-15 minutes (depends on your oven)
10. When they're just come out from the oven, they are really soft, so be careful not to smash them when picking them up.

Tips and Trick:
- Wet your hand and the spoon when you're spooning and shaping the batter, so it won't get sticky.
- I used cupcake baking tray so they form a perfect beautiful round shape.
- It will take approx. 3 almonds to garnish a dozen of cookies, so depends on how many you'll make. I suggest just start chopping every new dozen you shaped, so you won't waste anything.
- If you don't wanna use that much butter, just replace the moist with some milk.
