Oatcakes

This is a favorite in my house, a not-too-sweet cookie-like biscuit great with coffee, tea, or plain old milk.

Ingredients

  • 1 1/2 cups flour ( I have used white, whole wheat, and a mix of the two with equal success)
  • Ad
  • 1 cup quick oats
  • 2 Tbsp. white sugar -OR- 1 tablespoon Splenda granular
  • 1 Tbsp. baking powder
  • 1/2 tsp. salt
  • 1/4 cup butter or margarine
  • 3/4-1 cup milk (reconstituted powdered milk works great! 1/3 cup dry milk mixed with enough water to make 1 cup)

Directions

Preheat oven to 450 degrees F.

Combine flour, oats, sugar, salt and baking powder until well mixed. Cut in butter with a fork, pastry blender, or your hands until the mixture resembles very fine crumbs. Mix in enough milk to make a stiff dough, knead a few times to get it all to stick together.

Now, there are two methods here. Either roll the dough out about 1/4 inch thick and cut circles with a juice can, glass or cookie cutter, or make golf ball-sized balls of dough and flatten them with the bottom of a glass. Arrange them on a cookie sheet lightly sprayed with cooking spray. Bake 12-15 minutes, or until golden brown.

I can't really say anything about storage, as these do NOT last in my house!

Enjoy!
