Digestive Biscuits

There are many types of desserts. Almost all of them contain something sweet, sugar, honey, or fruit perhaps. This is both because (most) people find it yummy and because the sweet taste eases your feeling of being full of dinner. Though there are of course desserts which aren’t as sweet as the general (like cake), one of them is cheese and crackers. In my family, even though I have small sisters, we sometimes have this – as a dessert. Cream cheese, Blue cheese, Brie, fruits & vegetables and a palette of various crackers/biscuits. Digestive Biscuits are one of my favourites, together with cheese they’re simply awesome. But today there are almost always preservatives and weird substances in the food we buy, even in the digestive biscuits, that’s why I decided to make my own!

This is how I did;

INGREDIENTS

  • 3 dl Rolled oats
  • 3 dl Graham flour / Wholemeal flour
  • 100 grams of Unsalted butter
  • 3 tbsp Sour milk or Yoghurt
  • 2 tbsp Honey
  • 1 ml Baking powder
  • 1 ml Salt

EQUIPMENT

  • Rubber spatula (as always)
  • Food processor
  • Glass or other round shape to cut out the biscuits
  • Baking Sheet (preferably perforated)
  • Baking paper
  • Oven
  • Baking roller

HOW TO DO

  1. Turn on the oven, 150°C.
  2. Put the Rolled oats in the food processor, mix til they’ve turned into flour.
  3. Make sure the butter is soft (37°C) and put it in as well, mix.
  4. Put in all the other ingredients and mix for about 3-5 minutes.
  5. Prepare a baking sheet with baking paper, put a baking paper on the are you’ll be working with the dough too.
  6. Roll out the dough (on the baking paper) til it is about 5 millimeters thick – just not too thin!
  7. Cut out roundly shaped biscuits using a glass (or whatever you’d like to use).
  8. Place the biscuits on the baking sheet.
  9. Put it in the oven and let them get a little bit tanned – 12-15 minutes will do.
  10. Take them out and let them cool.

Tip! ~ I like salt, so what you can do is sprinkle a bit more salt over the biscuits before you put them in the oven

Serve accompanied by butter and cheese ~ or just cream cheese.
