I really love these biscuits as I can almost convince myself that they are good for me.
Jude Blereau is a wonderful Perth woman who runs a great cooking school, writes fabulous books and holds incredibly interesting seasonal seminars. This recipe comes from her book Coming Home to Eat. I love that much of the biscuits are made using rolled oats and almonds. They must be good for you.
This makes the texture of the biscuits so delightful.
It is really important to make sure that the toasted almonds and rolled oats are completely cooled. The first time I made these I impatiently added choc chips too early and the heat made all of the pieces melt. This isn't necessarily a bad thing, as they still had the chocolatley taste, but there was not a chip in sight.
These are now one of my new favourite biscuits.
Happy holiday baking. Such a super-long weekend coming up.
