Everyone will want some.

They are a delectable delight.

  • 1 cup self-rising flour
  • 1/2 cup fruit (dry salted, finely chopped)

  • vegetable oil (approximately 1/4 cup)

Directions

  1. Preheat the oven to 180 Celsius.

I made these a few times for the kids to try and stray away from normal everyday cookies; which they ate faster than I could make. I used various different types of fruit to add more variety each one just as good as the last. I will definitely be making these 5 star cookies again.
