Digestive Biscuits


I’m missing my friends from England so I made these.


75g cold butter

100g wholewheat flour

65g oatmeal

1/4 teaspoon baking soda

35g brown sugar

1 to 2 tablespoons milk

melted chocolate for decoration


In a large bowl, mix together butter, flour and until with your fingers until it looks like breadcrumbs.

Add in baking soda and sugar and mix to combine.

Add 1 tablespoon of milk and form a dough.  Use an additional tablespoon of milk if it is not coming together. It should stick together but not all over your hands.

Shape the dough into a thick slab. Place it between two sheets of plastic wrap and use a rolling pin to roll it out to 2cm thick.  Chill for at least 30 minutes.

Roll out dough onto floured surface to about 1cm thick. Using a straight edged cookie cutter cut as many rounds as you can. Use a fork to make pricks in each cookie. Place on a cookie sheet and chill for 20 minutes while oven is preheating to 325 degrees.

Bake for 10 to 12 minutes until edges start to brown.

Once cooled, dip in melted chocolate.

I worked with this recipe.
