Christmas Pudding Cookies

Ho ho ho!

Yesterday I made some Christmas Pudding Cookies as my entry to the “Matthew Walker Pudding Challenge”. They went down really well with my friends at work, and I will definitely be making these again come Christmas :-D

My Christmas Pudding Cookies

Ingredients (makes 12)
3 oz flour
3 oz caster sugar
3 oz rolled oats
3 oz butter
1 tbsp golden syrup
A pinch of salt
1 tbsp milk
½ tsp bicarbonate of soda
100g Mathew Walker Christmas Pudding

Pre-heat oven to Gas Mark 6.
Prepare an oven tray with greaseproof paper.
Mix together the flour, caster sugar and rolled oats in a large mixing bowl. Add a pinch of salt.
Melt the butter and syrup in a pan.
Stir the melted butter and syrup into the flour, sugar and oats.
Mix the milk and bicarbonate of soda together, and add this to the mixing bowl.
Add the Christmas Pudding chunks to the cookie mix.

The cookie mix is done!

Place golf-ball sized chunks of the cookie mix evenly spaced onto the tray (about 10cm apart).
Cook in the oven for 8-10 minutes.
Remove and cool.


Matthew Walker is the World’s Oldest Christmas Pudding Maker, creating puddings in the heart of Derbyshire since 1899. Matthew Walker ‘The Pudding’ - made to "Recipe 13, "The Perfect Christmas Pudding Recipe" - contains the 13 core ingredients that were used to represent Jesus and his 12 Apostles. They are: sultanas, raisins, demerara sugar, currants, glacé cherries, Thornbridge stout, breadcrumbs, sherry, vegetable suet, almonds, orange and lemon peel, cognac and mixed spice).

They were, indeed, very tasty.

I reckon a little bit of brandy and they'd be magnificent!
