- 75g (3oz) plain flour
- ½ tsp baking powder
- ½ tsp salt
- 125g (4½oz) medium oatmeal
- 75g (3oz) cold butter, cubed
Preheat the oven to 180C/Gas 4. Sift the flour, baking powder and salt into a bowl. Add the oatmeal and butter and rub together with the tips of your fingers until the mixture resembles breadcrumbs.
Pour in 4-5 tbsp of water and mix to a soft dough. Dust a surface lightly with flour then knead until smooth. Roll out to 6mm (¼in) thick then using a 5cm (2in) fluted edge cookie cutter punch out 18 rounds.
Place on two baking sheets dusted with flour and bake in the oven for 15 minutes. Cool on a wire rack.
