This is a Canadian version of the Scotch favorite. They are delightful served
on a dessert tray with cheese. This recipe makes a not-too-sweet cookie.
- 2 cups all-purpose flour
- 3/4 cup granulated sugar
- 3/4 teaspoon salt
- 3/4 teaspoon baking soda
- 3/4 teaspoon ground nutmeg
- 2 cups quick-cooking rolled
- 1 cup shortening or lard
- 1/3 cup cold water
- Measure and sift into a bowl the first 5 ingredients. Mix in rolled oats. Cut
in shortening and blend in water (enough to make a workable stiff dough).
- Roll out
on a floured board to 1/4 inch thick. Cut into squares or cut out rounds with cookie
- Bake at 375 degrees F for 15 minutes or until just brown.
Makes 12 dozen.
