Biscuits, also known as cookies

I enjoy my morning teas and like to have two sweet biscuits each time. My favourites are these Golden Goodness Biscuits made with oats and mashed pumpkin. They are sweet and full of fibre. No icing required and quick to make. The recipe makes 100, but these tasty morsels freeze well. Do not attempt to make a slice with this recipe because I can guarantee it will be a failure.

Golden Goodness Biscuits
 (Makes about 100)

4 cups plain flour
2 cups oats
2 teaspoons bicarbonate of soda
2 teaspoons ginger or other favourite spices
1½ cups oil
2 cups sugar
1 egg
1 teaspoon vanilla
1½ cups mashed pumpkin

  1. Combine flour, bicarbonate of soda, oats and spices.

  1. Beat together oil, sugar, mashed pumpkin, egg and vanilla. Beat well for 2 minutes. Do not skimp on this length of time. The longer these ingredients are beaten together the better the finished product will be. As this is only a small quantity beating by hand will do.

  1. Combine all ingredients. Easy.

  1. Roll into balls and flatten onto lined baking trays. How big should the balls be? Walnut size, but not as big as ping pong balls.

The biscuits will spread a little during cooking. You will fill four trays.

  1. Bake at 170 - 180 degrees Celsius for 20 minutes.

6              6.   These biscuits are quite sweet and delicious with tea or coffee.

7.  Store in an airtight container in the fridge. These biscuits will freeze.
