Apple Biscuits

My daughter and I made these simple apple biscuits earlier this week, after nursery. A good rainy day activity if your looking for some inspiration. I like this recipe as it has 5 ingredients and uses apple juice instead of sugar to bring the biscuit dough together. They are very plain to eat (for adult tastes) but a good recipe for some easy baking fun in the kitchen.

  • 100g plain flour

  • 100g spelt flour, or wholemeal flour

  • 1/2 teaspoon baking powder

  • 75g butter, cut into cubes

  • 75ml apple juice


Preheat the oven to 180C (fan oven). Then Line one large, or two smaller trays with baking paper (ready for the biscuits)

Sift the floors and baking powder into a bowl: add the butter and rub with your finger tips into breadcrumbs. Then add the apple juice and bring together with your hands to formate dough.

Tip out on a floured surface and knead a little to bring it together. Then roll it out quite thinly (3mm approx). Use cutters to cut into shapes & place on the lined tray(s). Bake for 15 minutes or until starting to colour. Remove from the oven and leave for 5 mins to cool, then transfer to a wire rack. 

The biscuits will store well, for a few days, in an airtight container.
