Easy Spelt Biscuits

This recipe uses Spelt flour, which is an ancient grain, containing a different type of gluten. Some people find spelt flour easier to digest, but it is still gluten and, therefore, unsuitable for coeliacs. I found these needed icing, as the flavour isn't as strong as with other flours. If you prefer, you could substitute for wholemeal. I love the rustic texture that these create.

175g Spelt, or Wholemeal, Flour
25g Medium Oatmeal
1/2 tsp Salt
1 tsp Baking Powder
75g Butter or Margarine
40g Soft Brown Sugar
2 tbs Milk

Mix the flour, oatmeal, salt and baking powder in a bowl.
Rub in the fat until it looks like breadcrumbs.
Stir in the sugar.
Add the milk and mix until it forms a dough. 
Roll out thinly and prick with a fork. 
Use cutters to cut out shapes.
Arrange on a greased baking sheet.
Bake at 190C for 15-20 minutes. 
Once cool, decorate by going nuts with piping icing and sweets!
