Mary Berry's oat biscuits

Did you get snow?
It passed us by in this corner of the Fens and I admit to being a little disappointed!
Though, we have had some beautiful, sunny and frosty mornings; the sort of morning when even the most mundane of objects is transformed by a sparkly covering of white crystals.

The other day, Tiny Girlie and I spent a cosy morning in the kitchen.
We baked biscuits; sometimes it is difficult to find recipes easy enough for her to be fully involved, but which are also relatively healthy.
This recipe from  Mary Berry's Ultimate Cake Book seemed to fit the bill.

With just 4 ingredients the recipe was straightforward and easy and most importantly the biscuits were delicious.

50g caster sugar
100g soft butter
100g rolled oats
50g plain flour

Preheat the oven to 160c.
Cream together the butter and sugar, then stir in the flour and oats and knead lightly until smooth.
Roll out to a thickness of 5mm and cut into rounds with a 6cm cutter.
Place on a greased baking tray and bake for about 20 minutes until starting to brown.
Cool on a wire rack.

We enjoyed the biscuits - me with a mug of tea and little F with her cup of milk.

Hoping you have a good week.

Speak soon. 



  1. They sound delicious. I'll be trying these this evening. Thank you. X

    1. Hello Jules. Thank you for commenting. I hope you enjoy them .

  2. Yes, we've had (still have!) snow here. Mary Berry has some lovely straightforward recipes and your biscuits look so good. I made a batch of her butter biscuits for the mister the other day and they went down well. Think your littlest would manage them as there are only 3 ingredients which, when mixed together, are rolled into small balls before baking.

    1. Snow -I'm jealous! Thank you for the biscuit suggestion. I've looked the recipe up and will definitely try them with little F.

  3. They look delicious. No snow here (Isle of Lewis) it came and went as quickly as it came.

    1. And I thought that being so far north you would have lots of snow!

  4. Could only imagine the mess in this kitchen if I tried to bake with the grandson! Glad your joint efforts were successful.

    Thankfully the dusting of snow here was very short lived. The increase in temperature is just whatI need right now.

  5. Sometimes the simplest things are the best. These look delicious
