Tasty Tuesday - Grandmom Mary's Scottish Cookies

Starting in two weeks (on April 6th), I will be doing a link party on Tuesdays for your recipes, so start thinking about it now!

Growing up, we did cook-for-a-month where we would spend three days cooking and filling up our freezer. GREAT idea, and I plan to do this too, especially as my kids get older. This is one of the cookie recipes we used since it freezes so well (They actually almost taste better straight out of the freezer)

Grandmom Mary’s Scottish Cookies
  • 2 cups flour
  • 1 tsp Baking Powder
  • 1 tsp Salt
  • 1 cup Sugar
  • 2 cups Bran Flakes
  • 2 cups Rolled Oats
  • ½ cup Boiled Water
  • ½ tsp Baking Soda
  • 1 ¼ cup Butter, softened
  • 2/3 cup Raisins
  • 1 tsp Vanilla

  • Preheat oven to 400 degrees. Boil ½ cup water and mix with ½ tsp baking soda and let stand until cool.
  • Meanwhile, mix all dry ingredients in a large bowl.
  • Add softened butter and mix in with a slotted spoon.
  • Add water, vanilla and raisins. Mix until it comes together into a ball. Add a little more flour if needed so it doesn’t stick to your hands.
  • Kneed for a minute or two. Divide in half. Roll out on floured board and cut with a  round cookie cutter. Place on an oiled cookie sheet. Bake at 400 degrees for 10 minutes or until golden.
What are some of your favorite cookies?
