Walnut cookies - Valnötskakor


Cookies with a special taste from cinnamon and treacle, crisp on the outside and slightly tough on the inside – just like me! :-D

30 to 35 cookies

Good 1 ¾ cups flour
1 cup brown sugar
1 cup oats (oatmeal?)
1½ tsps baking powder
¼ tsp ground cinnamon
3½ oz butter or margarine
good 1/3 cup raisins
good 1/3 cup chopped walnuts
3 tbsps treacle
5 tbsps soured cream or plain yogurt
1 beaten egg

Mix flour, sugar, oats, baking powder and cinnamon in a bowl. Cut the fat in pieces and work it in with a fork. Chop raisins and nuts and add it to the batter together with treacle. Mix soured cream and beaten egg and stir this in as well. If you put it in the fridge for about 15 minutes it will be easier to shape.

Shape walnut-sized balls of the batter and put them with about 1 inch in between on baking plates, greased or with baking paper. Flatten the cookies with the back of a spoon or with a fork, then bake in the middle of the oven at 200C/gasmark 6 for about 15 minutes or until golden brown. Cool on a rack.
