Walnut Raisin Drop Cookies

The crunchiness of nuts and the softness of butter and desicated coconut. Umm..perfect!:)



  • ¼ C Crushed walnuts
  • ¼ C Raisins(kishmish)
  • ¼ C Desiccated coconut
  • ½ C Maida
  • 1 tsp Baking powder
  • ¼ C Softened butter
  • ¼ C Sugar
  • 1 egg (or 2 tbsp of butter)
  • ½ tsp Vanilla essence


  • Sift flour and baking powder.
  • Beat sugar and butter till light. Add egg and vanilla and beat till well mixed.
  • Add flour-b.p., walnuts and raisins. Mix gently.
  • Prepare a baking tray by greasing it lightly.
  • Put spoonfuls of the batter on the tray keeping sufficient distance in between. Use a spoon to “drop” the batter onto the sheet to get irregular shape cookies. You should get about 15.
  • Bake at 160 deg C for 20-25 mins.


Lakshmi’s Notes: I substituted the egg with 2 tablespoons of butter. These cookies are absolutely fabulous and take very little time to bake.

Mandira’s Notes:I love these cookies!! and my colleagues love them more than I do!
