I made a lot of my Christmas gifts last year but I couldn’t post about them until after Christmas so this is the first post in my series of Christmas gifts. I love gifts in a jar; they are fun to make, give and receive. You can download labels and recipe cards for these cranberry and white chocolate oaty biscuits I made from home style.
This recipe fills one 1 quart jar or another large jar that is around 1L or a little less.
1 1/3 cups plain flour
1 tsp baking powder
1 tsp baking soda
1/4 tsp salt
1 cup rolled oats
1 cup dried cranberries
1 cup white chocolate bits
1 cup brown sugar (or as much as will fit in the jar to fill to the top)
On the recipe card write or print out a recipe card:
1 egg – lightly beaten
1/2 cup butter – softened
1 tsp vanilla essence
Preheat oven to 180C.
Empty the jar into a large bowl.
Add the wet ingredients into the dry ingredients. Mix with the back of a large spoon.
Roll the dough into 4cm balls.
Place the balls on a baking try and bake for about 10 minutes.
TIP: for any recipes in a jar use a bottle to compress each layer of the mixture to allow room for all the layers and also to separate each layer neatly. Make sure you wipe clean the bottom of the bottle between compressing each layer.
