    Cook's tips

    The flapjacks will still be soft when they are cooked and come out of the oven. They become harder and crisper as they cool.

    For a special occasion, substitute Waitrose Traditional Recipe Mincemeat for Waitrose Special Recipe Mincemeat.

    These flapjacks would make a good gift-wrapped Christmas present. Or why not get the children to help you make them for the school Christmas bazaar.
