This week has involved a lot of gift making... friends with new babies, a few birthdays, a gift for a little girl in hospital, and a couple of 'thank you's' sprinkled in for good measure.

I managed to make a few of the 'easier' ones yesterday, with some home baked chewy raisin cookies (recipe below), and a super-sized, plastic covered pencil case filled with crafty bits and pieces for a beautifully crafty little girl....


Chewy Raisin Cookies

Cream together:
300 grams butter
1 cup of sugar
2 tablespoon golden syrup

Mix together with creamed mixture:
2 cup flour
2 teaspoon baking powder
1 cup coconut
1 cup rolled oats
1 cup raisins

Roll into balls, flatten and bake in at 180C for around 10-15 minutes, or until golden. This batch will make more than enough to fill your biscuit tin, and share some with a friend.




  1. Just wanted to pop in and say I just made your cookie recipe but with margarine instead of the butter to make it dairy-free and I am finding myself having to resist scoffing it all - so yum! Thanks for posting the recipe!

  2. Thanks for your commment. They are yummy aren't they. I often use olivani instead of butter which works equally as well :)

  3. Your dishes are really delicious. I never designed food or dishes on this way. Your work seems that you are really very talented to do this type of work.
