Small oat biscuits that are traditionally eaten in Scotland with cheese or pate' as a snack, we sometimes have them for a light lunch with a side salad.Last time I made them we had #211001 French Tarts French onion marmalade,with them and it was a perfect addition.

We really enjoyed these tasty treats. Tried them with marmalade and with artichoke "caviar", both worked well. Actually, the only problem we had was that we had to make a second batch as the first had disappeared. Thanks for posting this Tea Jenny. Made for ZWT6
