  • 100g light brown soft sugar
  • 50g rolled oat
  • 85g raisins or sultanas

You will need

  • 1 big jam jar or small Kilner jar (about 750ml capacity)
  • 1 long colourful ribbon
  • 1 sticky label for the jar (or tag to tie to the top) and a pen
  • weighing scales
  • measuring spoons


  1. Wash the jar, then dry very well.

  2. Mix the flour with the spices and bicarb, then tip into the jar. Use your fingers to remove any lumps from the sugar, then pour into the jar. Add each of the remaining ingredients, one by one, following the list, until you’ve added the biscuit bits.

  3. When all the ingredients are in the jar, put the lid on tightly. Sit the apple on top of the lid and tie to the jar with ribbon. The mixture and apple will keep for 4 days.

  4. Download our printable label (see tip), or write out the following instructions on a sticky label (or tag) and attach to the jar: Tip everything in the jar into a big mixing bowl and grate in the peeled apple. Melt 50g/2oz butter with 2 tbsp golden syrup and stir into the bowl with 1 egg. Space 10 spoonfuls on greased trays and bake for 15-18 mins at 180C/160C fan/gas 4 until golden and chewy. The cookies will firm up as they cool.

Made the recipe exactly as above and biscuits turned out lovely. The smell is warm and spicy, and at about 15gr each, made about 40 biscuits. Agree that they didn't spread, so were a bit chunky and soft-textured. Nice way to use extra apples.

A lovely gift - I followed the receipe to the letter and ended up with delicious cookies. Mine were quite fat, not a traditional flat crisp cookie but still lovely with a slight muffin type texture.

Recipe is incorrect! 50g of butter is no where near enough needed. I think it must be a typo. Highly frustrating as I only followed this recipe because I had a little bit of butter leftover. Had to improvise with extra oil instead.
