apple and raisin cinnamon cookies









Recently I started buying from two ladies who sell incredibly good organic nuts, raisins and the sort. I had the opportunity to visit a friend, who is lactose intolerant, and knowing how much he likes sweet things, I decided to try the ingredients I had bought from them in this delicious cookie recipe, and take them for a cup of coffee at his place, for a small gathering he had organized. Though, I must admit, I did a few more to keep at home, because they are just the kind of healthy treat anybody would want their children to have after an exhausting day at school.

Recientemente comencé a comprarle a dos señoras que venden frutos secos orgánicos, increíblemente buenos, pasas de uva y cosas por estilo. Tuve la oportunidad de visitar a un amigo que es intolerante a la lactosa y sabiendo lo mucho que le gustan las cosas dulces, decidí probar los ingredientes que les había comprado en esta deliciosa receta de galletas y las llevé para acompañar una taza de café, para un pequeño evento que realizó en su casa. Aunque, debo admitir, hice un poco más para tener en casa, ya que son precisamente el tipo de alimento saludable que cualquiera quisiera que sus hijos tenga después de un día agotador en la escuela.


The shredded apple substitutes the milk or cream I often use in this kind of dough, and not only gives it a rich moist texture, but enhances the flavour in such a great manner! I love the combination of raisin and cinnamon and the extra flavour of apple just made them scrumptious.

La manzana rallada sustituye la leche o crema, que utilizo a menudo en este tipo de masa, y no sólo le da una rica textura húmeda, sino que realza el sabor en una gran manera! Me encanta la combinación de pasas y canela, y el sabor extra de la manzana los termina de hacer deliciosos.









I was very happy to see how all of those invited devoured the cookies, as they had their coffee, and were ready to ask for more. These are the simple things baking gives me as a reward, I was very pleased to see how a batch of cookies could make a bunch of grown ups act like kids!

Me puso muy feliz ver cómo todos los invitados devoraban las galletas, mientras tomaban su café, y estaban dispuestos a pedir más. Estas son las cosas simples que hornear me da como recompensa, me alegró ver como una fuente de galletas logró que un grupo de adultos actuara como chicos!

  3. I would have devoured that cookie as well, it looks delicious and those raisins are so big, they look plump and moist. I too love cinnamon and raisin together, adding the apple is wonderful both for flavor and it does make them very moist. Wonderful cookie Viviana!
