Servings: 1
Categories: Cakes / Desserts

    3.50 c Oats; quick
    1.00 ts -salt
    2.00 tb Flour
    0.50 c Shortening
    0.50 c -water ,approx.

Combine the oats, salt and flour. Cut in the shortening and add enough water to dampen and form a ball. (A food processor does the work in a jiffy). Leave to swell for ten minutes. Divide the doght and roll eacxh part to 1/8" thickness; slide onto ungreased cookie sheet, indent in squares with a pastry wheel or knife. Bake in 350F for about 1/2 hour but watch that they don't turn brown. Sweet Oatcake: Add 1 cup sugar to recipe. Anne's note: That recipe is labelled "Bannock" in the title in cookbook but it far more a nonsweet oatcake in the tradition of Walker's oatcakes (it appears as "oatcakes" in the book's index.
