Recipe by Evil Eva
A crispy, crumbly, not too sweet, buttery English type biscuit. Great with tea or coffee, I love them for breakfast!

These are scrumptious! Here are a couple of details from my experience. I used a food processor to coarsely grind the oats. Incorporating the baking soda was a bit tricky; perhaps next time I will use a teensy bit more water to dissolve it. All in all, though, this is a terrific recipe. Maybe some day I'll try the real Hobnobs!
- 3 cups whole oats, crushed a little
- 1 cup all-purpose flour
- 1 cup brown sugar, packed
- 1 cup butter
- 3⁄4 teaspoon baking soda
- 1⁄2 teaspoon water
- 1 teaspoon salt (I prefer coarse sea salt)
- coarse sugar
Directions See How It's Made
- Preheat oven to 375°F.
- Dissolve the baking soda in the water.
- Combine the oats, flour, salt and brown sugar. Cut in the butter until the mixture resembles coarse crumbs. Stir in the baking soda.
- Using a table spoon, scoop a spoonful and roll into a ball. Put balls onto cookie sheet lined with parchment paper.
