Flapjacks with dried apricots

Flapjacks met gedroogde abrikozen
Last Sunday it rained non-stop all day. My sister didn't care; she put on her rain suit and came to us on her bike. We do eat cookies every now and then, but we don't have a cookie jar full like we used to have at home. Time to make Flapjacks with dried apricots. English flapjacks are delicious cookies with oatmeal that are ready very quickly; weigh all ingredients, knead and divide into a baking tin. This is done faster than the oven can heat up. Because these oatmeal cookies contain pieces of dried apricots, the amount of sugar is slightly reduced. Delicious with a cup of coffee or tea. The pan was cooling in less than half an hour, so by the time my sister stepped inside, we were enjoying the flapjacks.

  1. Preheat the oven to 175 degrees in a convection oven or to 195 degrees in an oven with top and bottom heat.

  2. Line the baking tin with baking paper or grease it with butter and sprinkle it lightly with flour.

  3. Knead all ingredients well by hand.

  4. Divide the batter into the baking tin and flatten it with a spoon or spatula.

  5. Bake the flapjacks for 16-18 minutes until golden brown.

  6. Remove the flapjacks with dried apricots from the oven and let them cool thoroughly before cutting them into pieces. Cutting will be better and tighter if they have cooled down properly.

Flapjacks are a bit sticky on the inside because of the sugar and syrup and that makes them so tasty.

Store your cookies tightly closed in a container. You can also freeze them for later.
