Lovely Soft and Chewy Oatmeal Raisin Cookies, packed full of sweet spices, juicy raisins and good old fashioned oats.
*The Sugar is only lightly packed into the cups.*The reason we soak the raisins is to help plump them up so they are nice and juicy.*These cookies only need a short chilling time, 30 minutes is enough time for the dough to stiffen up a little there is no need to chill further but the batter will be fine if you keep it in the fridge, covered for up to 2 days.*Corn syrup can be used in place of golden syrup but the cookies may not turn out as sweet as the original recipe calling for golden syrup.
