As it's been raining all day, I decided to cook a batch of Choc Chip Cookies later this afternoon, but I added Sultanas as well.

Recipe: CHOCOLATE CHIP COOKIES (recipe is on back of packet)

125gms butter (softened)
1/2 cup brown sugar
1/3 cup caster sugar
1 egg
1 teaspoon Vanilla essence
1 and a 1/2 cups of Self Raising Flour
1 cup of Cadbury Chocolate Baking Chips (either white, milk or dark chocolate)

Preheat oven to 160C. Cream butter and sugars till light and fluffy. Whisk in the vanilla essence and egg. Stir in the sifted flour and then fold in the chocolate chips.
Place teaspoons of mixture on a baking tray lined with either grease proof paper or baking paper and bake in moderately slow oven at 160C for 15 minutes. Cool on a wire rack. They are delicious.

As I didn't have a full cup of choc chips I filled it up with sultanas. Trev loves sultanas more than the choc chips. Enjoy. Love Chris

I'll bet you would also like oatmeal raisin cookies cookies. the recipe was always on the box of Quaker oats. I don't know if Quaker oats is still around. Kay

Hi Kay, here in Australia I buy Uncle Toby's Original Oats and yes I would love the raisin cookies with oats. I have porridge most mornings for breakfast with strawberries so I'm a real Oats fan. Love Chris

Oh yum. Unfortunately I cannot make these. Klaus is not too keen on biscuits so I would eat the lot. šŸ˜¢

This is for Chris (cfdl), I see you were asking about our Sultana grapes. I've got some information here about them and in Martine's response to your post. Love Chris

1. Sultana grapes (dried grapes)
2. Raisin grapes (dried grapes)
3. Packet of Sunbeam Raisins
4. Packet of Sunbeam Sultanas

Here in Australia, our Raisins are much plumper and jucier than our Sultanas (especially in the dried fruit)

Only Brand to buy [in my humble opinion], though I am sure there are many others just as nice.

They are delicious Miss Lillian, crunchy but when you bite into the Choc chip and the sultana you get a chewy sensation. Love Chris
