Honey Oat Cookies

Me and Scrap had the day together all on our own for the first time in ages today. This morning we turned out the storecupboard and mixed what we found together to make these.

Very easy, very sticky and made loads.

175g butter
100g clear honey
175g demerara sugar
250g porridge oats
85g small sultanas or raisins
85g plain flour
½ tsp bicarbonate of soda
1 egg, beaten

Preheat the oven to 180C / Gas 4. Melt the butter and honey together in a large pan then take off the heat.

Stir in the sugar, oats, sultanas, flour, bicarb and beaten egg.

Drop small spoonfuls on good non-stick baking sheets or silicone paper and bake for 7 – 12 minutes until dark golden - they're quite chewy at about 7 minutes but turn crunchy if you cook them longer. Leave to cool and harden for a few minutes then lift onto a wire rack and leave to cool completely.

I can attest that they are fantastic biscuits after Rob brought some into work. Thanks Silvana! And thanks for everything else you've made at home that we've had the leftovers of. We are a very happy Word office because of you.

Oh Jude, that's very kind of you to say so. Me and Scrap are making marmalade today so they'll be a jar of that in the office tomorrow for your toast x
