A Tried & True Treat Rich In Nutritious Raisins
When deciding which sweet treat to bake for this year's holiday parties, consider dried fruit. Using dried fruit is a popular trend that usually proves to be a crowd pleaser. For example, raisins are a great option since they are available year-round, do not spoil or bruise, and can be used in both sweet and savory dishes.
Also, raisins make a great staple to keep in the pantry for holiday baking or as a healthful snack, and their sweetness and texture can help spruce up an old recipe or inspire a new one. There are many ways to use them in a variety of dishes including cookies, as an addition to fruit pies, muffins, as salad toppers or even baked with different types of meat.
Some tips to keep in mind when using raisins in recipes:
Combine first five ingredients in bowl; set aside. Beat margarine and sugars in bowl. Beat in eggs and vanilla. Beat in flour mixture until blended. Gradually add oats and raisins. Drop by spoonfuls onto ungreased baking sheets, 2 inches apart.
Bake at 375 degrees F, 10-12 min. Cool on racks.
