Oatmeal Shortbread

This Oatmeal Shortbread will tickle the gruff exterior and tender heart of any ScotUnusual recipe? Definitely. Combining rolled oats with the ingredients in basic shortbread is odd - but it works! Frankie wanted to take photos as I prepared these, but lacked the necessary underwater camera.

Oatmeal Shortbread:

¾ c. all-purpose flour
⅔ c. large flake rolled oats
½ c. cornstarch
½ c. sifted icing sugar (“confectioners” sugar or “powdered” sugar)
¾ c. butter, softened

Preheat oven to 300 deg. F. Combine all ingredients except butter, mixing with clean hands. Add butter, rubbing between thumbs and index fingers until mixture becomes dough-like. Pat into a slightly flattened oval; chill 30 min.  

Divide chilled dough in half. On parchment-lined baking sheet, pat each into 5-½-in. (14 cm) round ½ in. (1 cm) thick. Before baking, slice each round into 8 wedges, pricking dough with fork tines. Bake 30-to-40 min. or until edges start to brown.

Tomorrow: Im taking a break from blogging. Back in a flash or a couple of weeks, whichever feels later.   xox   Nicole
