Fruit digestive biscuits (v)

Not quite the same as McVitie's original digestives, but a good option if you're keen on fruit varieties of this classic biscuit.
Makes about 12 - 16 biscuits, depending on the size of your cookie cutters; double the recipe for a larger batch.
Adapted from a recipe for '
Close to McVitie's Digestive Biscuits'.

Ingredients:
1 cup wholemeal flour
1/2 tsp baking powder
1/2 tsp bicarbonate of soda
4 tbsp brown sugar
4 tbsp vegetable oil
2 tbsp water
1/4 cup currants (small raisins)

Method:
1. Preheat your oven to 190'C (375'F) and line two baking trays with baking paper.
2. Combine the flour, baking powder, bicarbonate of soda and brown sugar in a mixing bowl. Add the oil and water and mix to combine. Add the currants and knead to create a thick, smooth dough.
3. Roll out the dough on a floured surface, to about 0.5cm thickness. Cut into circles using a cookie cutter or round glass. Bake on the prepared trays for 14 - 16 minutes or until golden brown; allow to cool on the trays before storing.
