Lacy Oat Biscuits

    15 min

    A very crisp oat biscuit with a delicious crunch. These bake in a flash. Watch them carefully while baking since they do tend to burn quickly.

    So, the recipe is dead easy but...I have just made 3 batches and none have worked! Firstly, I HAD to grease the tray otherwise they stuck fast, secondly they came out so thin that I had to scrape them off the tray and thirdly - well, they just didn't work. A thin scrape of sugary oat was all I got. Any suggestions of how to turn this into an actual crunchy biscuit/cookie?  -  07 May 2012


    Tried this recipe and found only a couple of criticisms: - 1. Be very careful with the Golden syrup, the biscuits are very sweet already. I reduced mine to 1tbsp. 2. I would recommend reducing the quantity of butter to 50g. Cooking time I found to be longer than the recommended 5 mins but that might be down to my oven (fan). The recipe says spoon them 4" apart - be sure that they really are at least that much. The end result is very much like brandy snaps.  -  15 Jul 2014


    These cookies are great! I was a little worried about them sticking so I used parchment paper on my cookie sheets and it worked wonderfully. **I was also low on light corn syrup so I substituted maple pancake syrup, it was delicious!* for a fun holiday treat I put two of them together with a chocolate filling, everyone loves them.  -  29 Dec 2005  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
