Oaty Shortbread Biscuits

17th May 2015


As biscuits go, shortbread’s one of my favourite and this is a nice twist on the classic. They are really light, have a crumbly texture and are perfect with a cup of tea. The best bit is that they are so quick and easy to make.

Makes about 40.


  • 200g softened butter
  • 50g icing sugar
  • 50g golden caster sugar
  • 200g plain flour
  • 1/2 tsp baking powder
  • 100g oats
  • extra caster sugar for dusting


  1. Preheat the oven to 180ยบC
  2. Cream the butter and sugars together in a large bowl until light and fluffy.
  3. Sift in the flour and baking powder, then stir through the oats and bring together to form a dough
  4. Cover the dough with cling film and roll into a log shape and chill for 30 minutes int he fridge


  1. Remove the cling film and slice into 5mm rounds. Sprinkle with extra caster sugar and place on a lined baking tray and bake for 15minutes until pale golden brown


Happy eating ๐Ÿ™‚
