Oats and Raisin cookies. (eggless version)

Everybody knows oats is good for health. So here is a cookie with oats. we can replace an unhealthy snack with this flavorful Oats and Raisin cookies.

1 1/4 cup uncooked oats.
3/4 cup All purpose flour
1/2 cup sugar .
1/4 cup raisins.
1/2 stick butter (1/3 cup softened )
1/4 cup milk
1/2 tsp vanilla essence
1/2 tsp baking soda.
1/2 tsp cream of tartar or 1/2 tsp white vinegar / lime juice.
1/4 tsp salt


Preheat oven to 375 deg F.
Gather everything in a big mixing bowl by hand. Keep it inside refrigerator for easy handling.
After 10 minutes spread an aluminium foil over a baking tray.
Roll the dough into small balls (size of a big gooseberry) and flatten them on the tray by using the bottom of a glass tumbler .
Place all cookies 1.5 inch apart , because the tiny cookies will swell and become big cookies , occupying more diameter.
Bake 9 minutes in 375 deg.
Take out and let it rest , so that it becomes stiff.(take the cookies out ,once the bottom seems mild brown in color. At this
stage the cookies will be soft , but after a few minutes outside they turn stiff.)
This cookies will be more soft and a bit chewy.
If you want to get more stiffened cookies add 1 egg instead of cream of tartar.

Serving suggestion:
makes 25 cookies.
