|These are the perfect biscuits to eat with a cup of coffee or tea. We don't eat these much in the states but they are a favorite in Canada and the UK. They are easy to make and much better than store bought.|
- 1½ cups flour
- ½ tsp baking soda
- ½ tsp cinnamon
- ½ tsp ground nutmeg
- ¼ cup sugar
- ¼ cup brown sugar
- pinch salt
- ¾ cup cold butter, cubed
- 1½ cups rolled oats
- ½ cup undiluted evaporated milk (not condensed milk)
- Place the flour, baking soda, cinnamon, nutmeg, sugar, brown sugar and salt in the bowl of your food processor.
- Add the butter and pulse it in until you have a crumbly mix. Dump this into a bowl.
- Toss in the rolled oats.
- Add the milk and toss together with a wooden spoon until a soft dough forms. Roll the dough out on a lightly floured board to a 1/4 inch thickness and cut out the oatcakes with a 3 inch biscuit cutter or an inverted drinking glass.
- Place on a parchment lined cookie sheet and bake in a 350 degree F oven for 18- 20 minutes. Bake until the edges start to brown. Cool on a wire rack. I like mine crisp so I let them sit in the slightly cooled oven for a while after baking.
These keep very well especially when you make them crisp.
