    Hob Nobs / Oat cookie recipe

    In another thread I have been asked to supply my Hob Nobs recipe, so here it is.

    You can add wholemeal self-raising flour if you like and Americans can add another kilo or 2 of sugar to suit their subtle palette. Of course the besetest Hob Nobs are the choccy one, but I can never be bothered to dick around with it. If you do decide to add a choccy topping, only use Cadbury's as the rest is shite.

    HOB NOBS

    120gms self raising flour
    120gms rolled oats
    60gms soft brown sugar
    120gms butter
    2 Tblsp honey (or 1tblsp Golden Syrup if you can find some)
    1 Tsp Bicarbonate Soda
    1 or 2 Tblsp of warm water - enough to make the mix slump a bit when on the baking tray

    Put all dry ingredients into a mixing bowl & mix well.
    Melt honey (or syrup), butter & sugar together, add to dry ingredients & mix well. At the end add the warm water.
    Roll small balls in your hand (about 2cm diameter) place on greased tray.
    Push flatter with one of those pad thai implements & bake for 15 - 20 mins at 180 deg.
    Remove from tray & cool on wire rack.

    Pics are always a nice addition to a recipe.

    Especially for Hon Nobs.

    Nice. Can I use Quaker Oats or are they too broken up? I've got a whole tin that I can be bothered to eat.

    I used smaller oats, so Quaker should be fine. I used some German/Swiss oats that they sell here and are much cheaper than Quaker.

    To be honest, I just use a brush of butter.

    This.

    I have 2 kilos of Cadburys bars to keep me going these winters months. Almost cost me excess baggage on the plane but those Aussie Sheilas at Melbourne airport love the Scottish accent.

    I made some Herbed ones on Sunday, used Chocolate in stead of Honey, very nice and made me very happy.



    They stick to the tray so next time will use baking paper.
