Fig & Oat Biscuits

We had a few too many figs lying around the house this weekend and mum said if I wanted to use them I had better do it quick or they wouldn’t be good anymore. Talk about baking under pressure! They are as delicious as they look! I would say it’s the little bit of cinnamon...

Fig & Oat Biscuits

We had a few too many figs lying around the house this weekend and mum said if I wanted to use them I had better do it quick or they wouldn’t be good anymore. Talk about baking under pressure!

They are as delicious as they look! I would say it’s the little bit of cinnamon that really makes these biscuits special.
I would suggest you give these a whirl if you have some spare figs. Perfect with a cuppa tea.

Fig & Oat Biscuits
Donna Hay

3/4 cup brown sugar
125g butter, softened
1 egg
1 cup plain flour
1/4 teaspoon bicarbonate of soda (baking soda)
1 cup rolled oats
3/4 cup chopped dried figs
1/2 teaspoon cinnamon
3 large figs, thinly sliced

1. Preheat the oven to 180°C. Place the sugar and butter in the bowl of an electric mixer and beat until light and creamy. Add the egg and beat well.

2. Sift the flour and bicarbonate of soda over the butter mixture and fold in with the oats, dried figs and cinnamon.

3. Roll tablespoons of the mixture into balls and shape into 7cm rounds. Place on baking trays lined with non-stick baking paper and top with sliced figs. Bake for 20 minutes or until golden. Cool on wire racks.

Makes 15.

Voila! Bon Appétit!
