Scottish Oat Cakes

1-1/2 cups Scottish Oatmeal (Rolled oats pulverized in a food
processor to a rough flour consistency)
1/2 cup Whole Wheat Flour
1 Tbsp Brown Sugar (Jaggery)
1/4 tsp Sea Salt
1/4 cup Butter if eating quickly or Butter flavored vegetable
shortening if storing for longer times , melted
1/2 cup Hot Water

Preheat oven to 325°F.

Place all but 2 tablespoons of the Scottish Oatmeal in a bowl with
flour, sugar, salt and baking powder; stir until combined. Add butter
and stir until evenly distributed. With a fork, mix in water, just
until moistened. Pat dough into a ball, and then flatten slightly.

Sprinkle reserved 2 tablespoons oats on a board. Roll dough out 1/4
inch thick. With a 2 to 3 inch round cutter, cut dough into rounds.
Re-roll and cut scraps. Place oatcakes about 1/4 inch apart on a
greased baking sheet.

Bake until Scottish Oatcakes are golden, approximately 25 minutes. Let
cool on a rack.
Enjoy plain, serve with jam or cheese, or use them to build hors
d'oeuvres, salmon.

Makes 12 Scottish Oatcakes.
