Rolled Oats Biscuits Recipe

June1

I can’t help comparing these  with Anzac biscuits because they share some of the same ingredients. However they are lighter and less sweet and I when I first made them I didn’t expect to like them as much as I did-they’re very nice and definitely worth trying.

Ingredients:

  • 4 oz/115 gm butter
  • 1/2 cup sugar
  • 1 beaten egg
  • 2 cups rolled oats
  • 1/2 cup sifted flour
  • 1.5 teaspoons baking powder

Method:

Cream the butter and sugar. Add the beaten egg. Combine all the dry ingredients and then add to the mixture and mix well. Roll into balls and place on an oven tray and press down thinly with a fork. Bake at 190 C/375 F for approximately 12 – 15 minutes (if you are using a fan-forced oven  then you will need to lower the temperature by up to 10 degrees centigrade and/or adjust the time). Place on a wire rack to cool and then store in an air-tight container.
