Chocolate Wheaty Biscuits
« on: December 06, 2015, 10:59:33 pm »
I have converted this recipe to TMX, from a lovely book by Michelle Crawford, A Table in the Orchard. With the TMX they are very easy to make. I doubled the original recipe. I intend to package up some in pretty bags for those unexpected Xmas presents.

Makes 36

Preheat oven to 180 o C
Line 3 oven sheets with baking paper

Ingredients

240g rolled oats
240 wholemeal flour, Spelt if available
120 g of dark muscovado sugar, (a mix of raw and dark brown ok)
1 teaspoon of carb soda
1 teaspoon of salt
240 g butter
1 to 2 tablespoons of milk

240 g of chocolate to coat

Method

Place oats in bowl and mix for a few seconds until they are of a course consistency.
Add all other ingredients to bowl, EXCEPT milk and chocolate. Mix until butter forms call bread crumb size grains.
Add 1 tablespoon of milk and mix on reverse speed 3 until mixture starts to clump together.  If mix is too dry, add another tablespoon of milk. ( after first tablespoon of milk I pinch together a small amount of mixture. If it comes together, don't add second tablespoon of milk.
Remove mixture from bowl and form into a large flat disc on Silat.
Cut disc into 4 with plastic scraper and form each 1/4 into a disc, wrap in plastic and place in fridge for 20 minutes to firm up. ( can remain in fridge for a day or more).
Remove from fridge and roll between two layers of baking paper until 1/2 thick.
Cut discs with 7cm scone cutter and place on baking tray and bake for 20 minutes.
Cool on wire rack.

Ice with melted chocolate and leave some plain.

Notes.
I think the unbaked 1/4 discs would freeze well.
As the dough holds together well, it is better to err on the thin side rather than thick.

Thanks girls, think I might make some mini ones.  About the size of TMX 31 cup .
The plain ones are very nice with a sharp cheese. Ral of course like the chocolate ones.
