making oatmeal cookie dough
Take ½ cup whole wheat flour and ⅓ cup chilled unsalted butter in a mixing bowl.
With a knife cut the butter in flour and make a bread crumb like texture in flour. You can also use your fingertips to mix the cold butter in the flour till the mixture resembles a bread crumb like texture. Alternatively a stand mixer also can be used. If the butter starts melting, then keep the mixture in the fridge for 20 to 30 minutes.
Then add the powdered sugar, ¼ teaspoon cinnamon powder and ¼ teaspoon vanilla essence.
Next add ½ cup rolled oats or quick cooking oats and 2 tablespoons golden raisins. mix again well.
Now add 3 to 4 tablespoons chilled (cold) milk in parts.
Mix and bring the mixture together so that it binds into a dough. Do not knead.
Just add enough milk in parts to mix and bind the mixture very well. The cookie dough will be sticky.

Now scoop out the dough with a tablespoon or any spoon.
Place the scooped dough on the greased tray. Keep some space of about 1.5 to 2 inches between the cookies.
Make cookies this way with the entire cookie dough. While working on the cookies, do note that the dough is sticky.
Now gently press the top of each oatmeal cookie with a spatula just to even it and make it smooth.
Place the cookie tray in the preheated oven in the center rack of an otg. Bake the cookies at 180 degrees celsius for 25 to 30 minutes or till the cookies become light golden.
Do not over bake them or make them too much golden as then oatmeal cookies will become hard. A way to test is with a spoon or fork press the top of the cookie. It should not create any impression on it.
Keep the tray outside for 2 to 3 minutes.
Then using oven mitts and a spatula remove the cookie and place them on a wired rack.
Once cooled then store oatmeal cookies in an airtight jar. Serve these chewy oatmeal cookies with milk or tea or coffee.
