150 g plain flour
75 g rolled oats
2 1/2 tsp baking powder
225 g Siúcra Light Golden Brown
30 g dried blueberries/cranberries
45 g white chocolate buttons
45 g dark chocolate buttons

1 tsp ground cinnamon
Layer all the ingredients in the jar. First, combine the flour, baking powder and vanilla sugar and place them at the bottom of the jar.

Instructions for the recipient:
Preheat the oven to 200°C.
Cream 225 g butter and 1 large egg until the mixture turns pale and fluffy.
Add the contents of the jar and work together to make a dough. Shape the dough into balls and place them on a baking sheet, pressing lightly on the top.
Bake the cookies in the centre of the oven for about 10−15 minutes or until lightly golden at the edges. Allow them to cool completely on a wire rack.
Time for citrus
Is there anything better than to start the morning with homemade marmalade on your toast. Let the season's citrus fruits inspire you.
Inspired by the Japanese breakfast staple, Puffed Pancakes with Strawberries, Cinnamon Syrup and Lemon Cream, served warm and straight from the pan are sure to be a winner with all the family.
Baking with oranges and lemons
Start the year with a wonderful, refreshing hint of citrus in your cakes and treats. Orange and lemon are wintry flavours and make a great choice for baking.
Mmm! What could be better than a rich, sumptuous chocolate cake to lift the spirits – either as an indulgent treat or to round off a meal.
Cheesecakes of every kind
How about serving up a creamy, tangy cheesecake rather than a regular cake at your party? Cheesecakes come in many different variations, forms and flavours.
