Just Like the Real Thing: Simple "All-Raisin" Style Cookies

All-Raisin Cookies are a popular treat sold in Japan. You can easily make your homemade version that'll taste just like the real thing. Use lots of raisins to make them tasty.

Ingredients: 20 cookies

Butter or margarine
40 g
Sugar
10 g
Egg
1 (40 g whisked for the dough, and the rest for the glaze)
Pancake mix
100 g
Raisins
100 g

Steps

1. Combine room temperature butter and sugar in a bowl and mix. Add the whisked egg little by little and mix in. (It's OK if it's a bit lumpy!)
2. Add pancake mix and stir with a wooden spatula, then add raisins and mix it all some more.
3. Roll out the dough and shape into a square on a baking tray lined with parchment paper.
4. Pierce it all over with a fork to create air holes, then brush on the egg glaze. Bake it for 12 minutes at 355F/180C. When it has cooled, cut into slices and it's done.
5. When you are rolling the dough, roll out to the size of the raisins. Pierce the dough firmly with a fork and pierce all over.
