Rosemary Remembrance Biscuits

The herb rosemary has always been symbolic with remembrance, thus with the centenary of the end of World War One today, I have created these biscuits in honour of all those who lost their life for the peace of others.  Serve them on a plate to form a wreath and spend a moment to reflect on their huge sacrifice.

Ingredients:

150g oat bran

12g wholemeal flour

2.5ml (1/2 tsp) bicarbonate of soda

5ml (1 tsp) salt flakes

Pinch of sugar

60g butter

5ml (1tsp) ground dried rosemary

15ml (1Tbsp) fresh rosemary, finely chopped

75ml water

 

Method:

  1. Preheat the oven to 180°C
  2. In a bowl mix together the oat bran, wholemeal flour, bicarbonate of soda, salt and sugar. Rub in the butter using your fingertips until a ‘breadcrumb’ texture has formed.
  3. Stir in the dried and fresh rosemary until evenly mixed.
  4. Stir in the water and bring to a dough using your hands.
  5. On a lightly floured surface, using a rolling pin, roll the dough to 25mm thick (note: it will be crumbly in order to achieve a crisp biscuit – simply gather with your hands to bring together). Using a cutter of your choice press approximately 24 biscuits, re-rolling dough as necessary.
  6. Place the oat biscuits on a baking sheet and bake for approximately 18-20 minutes, depending on size, or until lightly brown and crisp.
  7. Serve on a platter with extra rosemary to garnish – delicious served with cheese.
