Cinnamon & apple cookies

With the delicious combination of oats, brown sugar, apples and cinnamon, these biscuits are like an apple crumble in biscuit form. This recipe isn't mine, but is adjusted from the ever reliable Australian Women's Weekly. Remember if you are cooking from this blog, my recipes are metric!

2 eggs
1 1/2 cups brown sugar (275g)
1 teaspoon vanilla essence
1/2 cup mild vegetable oil
2 tblspn golden syrup
2 cups rolled oats
1 1/2 cups chopped dried apples (135g)
1 3/4 cup plain flour (150g)
3/4 tsp baking powder
1/2 tsp bi-carb soda
1 tspn ground cinnamon

Set your oven to preheat at 210 degrees.

Beat the sugar and eggs with an electric mixer until the mix becomes light in colour. Stir in the vanilla essence, oil and golden syrup. Then stir in the oats, apple and sifted dry ingredients. Cover and refrigerate for an hour.

Roll tablespoons of the mix into balls, and press down onto a silicone-paper lined baking tray. Bake for 10 minutes or until lightly browned. Cool on the tray.
