Preheat the oven to 160 C / Gas 2/3. Line 2 baking trays with baking parchment.
Beat the butter and sugar together until pale and fluffy. In a separate bowl, mix together the remaining ingredients and then mix into the butter mixture to make a firm dough. Wrap in cling film and chill in the fridge for 10 to 15 minutes.
On a floured surface, roll or press out the dough to a 22cmx16cm rectangle and cut into 12 biscuit bars. Arrange on the prepared baking trays.
Bake in the preheated oven for 15 to 20 minutes until golden. Remove from the oven and cool slightly on the tray before transferring to a cool rack.
Wrap 2 to 3 biscuits in paper for a great breakfast on the go! You can also try making the biscuits with other dried fruits.
