Nutrition: Per serving


You will also need

  • 1l Kilner jar
  • gift label,

To bind the gift ingredients


  • STEP 1

    Layer your ingredients in the jar as follows: First, put in the wholemeal flour mixed with baking powder. Then, the dried cranberries followed by the rolled oats with cinnamon. Your fourth layer is the soft brown sugar seasoned with flaky sea salt and finally, the white chocolate chunks and Horlicks. If giving the jar as a present, simply download our gift tag with the recipe method and print it off, stick it on the jar and tie a ribbon around the top.

  • STEP 2

    If you want to make the biscuits yourself, or would rather handwrite the label, the method is as follows: Butter two baking sheets and pre-heat the oven (180C/160C fan/gas 4). Whisk an egg, the soft butter and vanilla extract in a bowl using an electric whisk until the mixture is smooth and creamy, so about 5 mins.

  • STEP 3

    Add the contents of the jar and mix together gently to form a dough. Put 12 golf-ball-sized spoonfuls of the dough onto each baking sheet, then bake for 11 mins. Remove the cookies from the oven and leave to cool a bit on the baking sheets. Eat them while they’re still warm.
