Nova Scotia oatcakes

My wonderful wife of almost 56 years, Sarah, is busily baking Christmas cakes and cookies for our extended family.  The most-in-demand item that she prepares each year is her Oatcakes.  They are even greatly sought after by my brother's children who live about an eight-hour drive away!  That being the case, I'd like to share her "straight-from-Cape-Breton" recipe with fellow Clan members.

3 cups rolled oats (she uses Quaker)

3 cups sifted all-purpose flour

1 cup brown sugar

1 tsp. baking soda

2 tsp. salt

1.5 cups shortening

2/3 - 3/4 cup cold water

Combine oats, flour, sugar,soda & salt.

Cut in shortening with blender until mixture is crumbly.

Using a fork, gradually add enough water for mixture to form a ball.

Roll out 3/8" thick on a lightly-floured board then cut into circles and place on a greased baking sheet.

Bake at 350F degrees for 15 minutes.

Makes about 4 dozen. yawn

YUMMM!

I can attest to the taste as I made them immediately. I did sprinkle a little spiced sugar on top to satidfy the "non scots" who might find them bland. I warmed them for 15 seconds in the micro. Great with honey, jam or butter. Best yet they keep for more than a week.
