Spelt digestive biscuits


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!
