they are very nice.

the timing is tricky by numbers but at some point they will be perfect for how you like them between 15 and 25 mins, but only for a window of a couple of minutes so vigilance is very much your friend

not hob nobs

4 oz/ 115g SR flour
4 oz/ 115g sugar
4 oz/ 115g oats
4oz/ 115g salted butter. or unsalted and add salt.
1/2 tbsp syrup
1/2 tbsp hot water
1/4 tsp bicarb of soda

Preheat oven to 180c/ 160c fan. line a baking tray
melt the butter water and syrup in a pan. Mix the remaining ingredients together, pour in butter mixture and stir well.
make walnut sized balls of the mix and arrange on the tray with growing space.. Cook for 15mins, they should be lightly brown. The biscuits will seem soft at first, move to a rack to cool as soon as they are firm enough to handle. They will become crunchy once cool.
makes 18 - 20.

That's interesting Nicky. Your recipe is very similar to my Famous biscuits one. The main difference is the SR rather than plain flour. Mine is a wholemeal version using honey not syrup.

Today's batch was for Basildon, we've done Sean's Honey recipe my hazelnut one (substituting pistachio & apricot) and lemon & poppy seed. There's also chocolate muffins and malteser muffins (they use ovaltine).
