The Eggless basic cookie dough that I discovered some years back is like have a genie in the pocket! I have made so many varieties of cookies using this basic dough and here is yet another one – Eggless Black Raisin Cookies Recipe.

I had a huge pack of Dark raisins and thought of using it in something so that it can feature as a post on the blog. When I was looking for cookie ideas I saw a similar one on Tarla Dalal’s site and decided to make mine with the cookie dough batch I made for this event – Bakeathon.

I usually make a batch and divide it into 5 portions and cling wrap each portion and freeze. When I need to bake, I thaw it on the kitchen counter and use flavors / add ons as needed and the cookie is done in a matter of minutes!!

Here is how to prepare Black Raisin Cookies Recipe

I used:

Eggless basic cookie dough – 180 grams

Slivered almonds as needed

  1. Take the cookie dough and the chopped raisin in a bowl and mix to combine. If you have difficulty bringing it together, add a few drops of milk.
  2. Divide the dough into 2 balls and roll out each into a 1/2cm thickness sheet.
  3. Use cookie cutters to punch out different shapes.
  4. Place them on a tray lined with parchment paper.
  5. Place an almond sliver on each cookie.
  6. Bake at 180 degree C in a pre heated oven for 8-10 minutes or till the bottom and the edges is light brown
  7. Transfer onto a cooling rack.Store in an air tight container once cooled.

  • The cookies will be soft as soon as they are baked. It will turn crunchy once it cools down.
  • The yield will depend on the size of cookie cutter used.

  1. Yes, having that cookie dough in the freezer is so convenient. Whenever the baking bug bites, you can bake cookies. I love the fact that you can change up the mix-ins to make a variety of them in no time.
