Quick, simple and oh so yummy! This recipe can easily be halved, but it's best to make the whole batch because they store amazingly well in the freezer.
1/2 quantity from book works fine to make about 20 biscuits:
Mix flour/oatmeal/salt/baking pwder in a bowl
Using paddle on mixer at medium speed beat butter and sugar together until light and fluffy (no more than 5 mins)
Switch mixer to low speed and add flour
Use just a smidge of milk to bring everything together
Put your hand into a sandwich bag and bring the dough together by turning bag outside in
Put dough into refigerator for at least 1/2 hour
Flour baking paper and roll out dough between 2 sheets
I roll out quite thin and give a high bake at 180degC which makes and keeps the biscuits nice and crisp - although they won't last long!
Thanks to Hugh and Heston
