Apple, Ginger and Oat Biscuits

Apple, Ginger and Oat Biscuits

100g margarine
75g soft brown sugar
1 apple, cored, peeled and cut into tiny cubes
125g wholemeal flour
50g rolled oats
1 tsp ground ginger
Half tsp baking powder
75g sultanas
Apple juice

1 - Pre-heat the oven to GM4, 160 degrees C.
2 - In a large bowl, cream together the margarine and sugar.
3 - Pour in the rest of the ingredients except for the apple juice and with your hands, mash together to form a stiff dough. If the dough is too stiff, mix in a little apple juice which will also naturally sweeten it even more.
4 - On a floured surface, roll out the dough to approximately 1cm thick then with your cutter of choice, cut out your biscuits.
5 - Bake on a greased baking tray for 8-10 minutes until golden. Allow to cool on a wire rack. They will keep in an airtight container for a couple of weeks.

Hey David,
I blogged about crumpets (aka pikelets) the other day. Perhaps you could let me know if this is a traditional Yorkshire recipe:D

A huge happy birthday to the princess from the pirates here.

Great pic! With that amount of children I hope you're resting this week.

Wow, lucky princess! It sounds like you gave her an incredible birthday party.

It was super fun!

BV, I've actually no idea where the crumpet derives from. It is certainly a British thing but I don;t think any particular region can lay claim to inventing it. Let me know if you find out as I love them!
