Method:

Pre - Preparation

Mix the goji berries with the sultanas and add the madeira. Set aside for a couple of hours.

Pre-heat the oven to gas mark 4 (180 °C; 350 °F).

Line a couple of baking trays with non-stick baking parchment.

Preparation

Beat together the butter and the sugars, and then mix in the flour and the porridge oats.

Once they are well combined, tip in the fruit and turn to make an even mixture.

Divide the mixture into 25 equal portions, and make each portion into a sphere.

Put the spheres on the baking trays, well-spaced, and just flatten a little with your fingers.

Cooking

Bake in the oven for 20 - 30 minutes or until the edges are golden brown and the centre still soft to the touch.

Cool for 5 minutes on the tray and then transfer the cookies to a wire rack to finish off.
