Oaty Apricot and Choc Chip Biscuits

Baking biscuits is such a pleasure for me, and something I do regularly for our lunches. Homemade biscuits always taste eons better than the ones you buy from the shop, you know what is going into them, and you get to eat the dough as you go! I have a few favourite biscuit recipes that I cycle through, and here is one of them.

Oaty Apricot and Choc Chip Biscuits

150 grams butter, softened
1/3 cup white sugar cup
1/3 cup brown sugar, firmly packed
1/2 tsp vanilla essence 
1 egg
1 cup white flour (or, half white, half wholemeal)1 tsp baking soda  
1cup rolled oats
1 cup dark choc chips
12 ish dried apricots, chopped

1. Cream butter and sugars together until smooth. Add vanilla and egg and beat again until combined.
2. Fold in remaining ingredients and mix until combined.
3. Roll in balls, place on greased baking tray and flatten with a fork.
4. Bake at 180 for around 10 minutes.

Makes around 24 biscuits.


  1. I love biscuits. Home made is sooo much nicer than bought ones. A simple few ingredients compared with 50.
    These look lovely Amy.

  2. MMMMMMMMMMMMMMMM,..What more can I say???
