  • Use high-quality ingredients.
  • Soak the raisins. This will make them plump and juicy. Soak the raisins in warm water or rum for about 10-15 minutes before adding them to the cookie dough
  • Use a mix of sugars. Using a combination of brown sugar and granulated sugar in your cookie dough will give your cookies a chewy texture and caramel-like flavor.
  • Measure the flour correctly. You can use a kitchen scale or measuring cup to measure the flour. Flatten the flour with the back of the knife. In this way, you can make more accurate measurements. Otherwise, too much flour can cause the cookie dough to become tough.
  • Use ingredients at room temperature. To bring egg, butter, and milk-based ingredients to room temperature, let them sit at room temperature for at least one hour before using them. In this way, the dough will have an even texture.
  • Do not overmix the dough. Mix the dough until the ingredients are combined. Otherwise, the cookie may be hard and dry.
  • Chill the dough. After mixing the dough, shape it into a disc, wrap it in cling film, and refrigerate the dough for at least an hour, until it has completely solidified. Chilling the dough before baking helps the cookies hold their shape and prevents them from spreading too much in the oven. In addition, this will keep them thick and chewy.
  • Flatten the cookies slightly with a fork or the bottom of a glass before baking to help them bake evenly and have a nice shape.
  • Use a cookie scoop or ice cream scoop to place the dough on the baking sheet. This ensures that the cookies are of even size and bake evenly.
  • Place the cookies evenly on the baking tray. The cookies will spread as they bake.
  • Use parchment paper. Line your baking sheet with parchment paper to prevent cookies from sticking and to make cleaning easier.
  • Make sure the baking tray is at room temperature. Otherwise, an overheated baking sheet may cause the cookie dough to spread.
  • Use walnuts or pecans to add a crunchy texture to your cookies.
  • Do not overbake the cookies. Check constantly while the cookies are baking. Otherwise, the cookie may be hard and dry.
  • Let the cookies cool on the baking sheet for a few minutes before transferring them to a wire rack to cool completely. This will prevent them from breaking apart.

How To Make Vegan Raisin Cookies?

Here are some ingredients that can be used for vegan raisin cookies:

Flour: Use all-purpose flour or gluten-free flour. You can mix different types of flour.

Butter: Use vegan butter or coconut oil.

Eggs: Use unsweetened applesauce or mashed banana instead of an egg.

Milk: Use almond milk, soy milk, or any other plant-based milk.

How To Make Gluten-Free Raisin Cookies?

You can make these homemade raisin cookies gluten-free by using gluten-free flours such as almond flour, coconut flour, or oat flour instead of all-purpose flour. Also, make sure all ingredients are gluten-free, including baking soda and vanilla extract.

How To Make Raisin Cookies Soft And Chewy?

To make raisin cookies soft and chewy, here are some tips:

  • Use enough butter. This will help your cookies stay soft and chewy. Make sure to use the amount of butter specified in the recipe.
  • Use brown sugar. Brown sugar contains molasses, which gives it a moist and chewy texture. Use a combination of brown sugar and granulated sugar in your recipe for the best results.
  • Don't overmix the dough. This will make the cookies tough and dry. Mix just until the ingredients are combined.
  • Chill the dough. Chilling the dough before baking helps the cookies maintain their shape and texture. Chill the dough for at least 30 minutes before baking.
  • Bake at the right temperature. Bake your cookies at the temperature specified in the recipe, and be careful not to overbake them. Overbaking can cause the cookies to become dry and hard.
  • Store properly. Store your cookies in an airtight container at room temperature. Adding a slice of bread to the container can help keep them soft and fresh for longer.
