Fruit and Nut Cookies – A recipe

Right so here is a recipe I concocted when I wanted cookies, since I had no chocolate chips I improvised.

The stuff you need:

2.5 cups flour ( I used AP but knock yourself out and use what you like, coconut flour works well)

3/4 Brown sugar (packed as tight as you can)

3/4 cup sugar (I used plain white sugar this time, but demerara or sugar in the raw work too)

1 tablespoon Agave nectar

2 tablespoons honey

3 eggs

1 stick of unsalted butter softened

1/2 tablespoon baking powder

1/4 teaspoon salt

1/2 teaspoon Vanilla extract

1/2 cup of chopped nuts of your choice

1 package of dried mixed fruits (5-7.5 oz)

What to do:

Preheat your oven to 350 degrees F (177 C)

Mix Flour, Salt, Baking Powder together in a bowl then set it aside

Combine the sugars and the butter in a large mixing bowl and stir until thoroughly mixed and slightly creamed.

Add the agave nectar, honey, vanilla and eggs, continue mixing until all ingredients are completely mixed.

Add the Flour mixture in four parts making sure that the previous addition is completely absorbed before adding the next.

When all the flour has been added and the dough is of the proper consistency fold in the nuts and fruit.

Chill in the fridge for 15 minutes

Drop in heaping tablespoons onto a non greased pan and bake for 11-15 minutes

Let stand for 1 minute before removing to a cooling rack

Try not to eat them all in one sitting

Makes about 18 big cookies.
