Digestive Biscuits


8 oz/200g Wholemeal flour

2oz/50g soft brown sugar

5oz/125g butter

1 tsp baking powder

1/2 tsp salt

1 tablespoon milk


Pre heat oven to 180C/350F/Mk4 and lightly grease a baking sheet.


Mix all dry ingredients and then rub in butter until mixture resembles breadcrumbs. Add enough milk to make a moist pastry consistency.


Refrigerate for 15 mins.


This dough is fairly delicate so roll out between sheets of baking parchment or cling film until 3mm thick. Cut into discs - reroll any trimmings.


Mark with a fork (or a meat tenderiser - which is what I use)


Bake for 15-20 mins until lightly browned and firm to the touch.


Remove from the oven and leave for 5 minutes before transferring to a wire rack.


Store in an airtight container.


You could cover them with melted chocolate.............. :wink:

Yes, thanks Lesley


I shall have to try these out for Harry. He is the chief taster for biscuits. He absolutely loves the oat cookies. I will try a batch of these to add a bit of variety.
