Old-Fashioned Oatcakes

This recipe is from the Speerville Flour Mill website

Preheat oven to 375°

2     cups flour
1 ½   cups rolled oats
1     tsp granulated sugar
1     tsp salt
½     tsp baking soda
¾     shortening
½     cup water (approx.)

In a large bowl, mix together the dry ingredients.

Cut in the shortening with a pastry blender or two knives until the mixture resembles coarse meal.

With a fork stir in water.. Dough should just cling together.

Add a little flour if too wet, or a little more water if too dry.

Divide dough in three portions.

On a lightly floured surface, roll out each portion as thin as possible. Cut into triangles.

Place 1” apart on an un-greased cookie sheet and bake for 10-15 minutes.

Oatcakes should brown but be still quite blonde when done.
